Every year, we have a Market Books "world tour" to celebrate the release of our latest editions of books. This "world tour," which once consisted of several cities in the region has slowly eroded into our two favorite local locations.
On August 20, the Market Books team (including me) will be speaking at Joseph-Beth at Rookwood Commons in Cincinnati, Ohio. Look for us near the fireplace around 7 p.m.
On August 27, the Market Books team (still including me) will be speaking at Books & Co. at The Greene in Beavercreek, Ohio. You can look for us near their fireplace around 7 p.m. as well.
Now that I'm thinking about it, it is strange that our two faves have fireplaces. What is it about a bookstore with a fireplace that draws the larger crowds and cooler event organizers? Hmm... I wonder.
Maybe next year I will tour the south searching for bookstores with fireplaces to speak to aspiring writers, but for this year, I'm content to continue covering Southwest Ohio.
