I've been blessed to see many authors speak in person at various author signing/speaking events at literary festivals and independent bookstores.
Looking back on all the author events I've attended over the years, I realize that I've seen author, Amy Stewart, three times since I've moved to the San Francisco Bay Area.
I first became acquainted with Amy Stewart's writing when I read her nonfiction books, Wicked Bugs and Wicked Plants, years ago and loved them.
So, I couldn't resist attending the 2015 Bay Area Book Festival and two other events where Amy Stewart spoke about her books, The Drunken Botanist and the first two novels in the Kopp Sisters Series. Having books signed by the author is always a good thing in my book!
Is there an author you've seen/heard speak more than once in person?
This is so cool that you've had the opportunity to meet Amy Stewart so many times! I haven't really met that many authors (2 and counting: Molly Patterson and Judy Blume) but I'm hoping to make more time for book festivals in coming years.ReplyDelete
I saw Judy Blume as well!! She spoke the 2015 Bay Area Book Festival about her career and signed copies of her novel, In The Unlikely Event. I really enjoyed hearing her speak and have enjoyed reading her books for young adults.Delete
Jonathan Evison, Lisa See and Ann Patchett.ReplyDelete
Lisa See was a very entertaining speaker when I heard her speak last year! Ann Patchett would be someone I'd like to hear speak as well. I am not familiar with Jonathan Evison, so will have to check out his works.Delete
