Special Events

I took over the reins of Literary Road Trip from the outstanding Michelle from Galleysmith.  For those new to Literary Road Trip, simply put it is a way for bloggers to showcase local authors.  You can do it through book reviews, author interviews or guest posts, you name it.

I participated in Detectives Around the World, hosted by Jen from Jen’s Book Thoughts. The detective I focused on was Archie Sheridan from Chelsea Cain’s Beauty Killer series.  In addition to reviewing Evil at Heart, I provided a glimpse inside Chelsea Cain’s Portland.

I took part in Dewey’s Read-a-thon.  Didn’t get nearly as many books read as I had planned; I fell asleep early and didn’t wake up til the next morning! I only read three books: The Mark by Jen Nadol, Veracity by Laura Bynum & Evil at Heart by Chelsea Cain.

 I said goodbye to my dear grandmother, who passed away just a few weeks ago. She cultivated my love of reading.  I recently learned that the library she loved so dearly may be closed, not due to a lack of funding but for political reasons. It’s become my mission to do what I can to save Wayne County Public Library.
