Morning Meanderings… Two Book Events Missed (Poo!)


Since June began, every Monday we have had a Minnesota Author at the Library sponsored by our Friends Of The Library.  I love these events as it is an author event that takes place three miles from my house, and it is a wonderful way to be able to listen to an author and hear about their writing and their books.

Two Mondays ago, June 9th, I missed Rhonda Foch’s, author of Minnesota Lost Town’s Northern Addition because I was at Camp.  This Monday I missed Peter Geye, author of The Lighthouse Road because I was speaking instead at the same time for a local volunteer group about the Friends Of The Library, an opportunity I could not pass up… but really wanted to hear Peter.  On the bright side, I was able to meet both authors before I ran to my other commitments.

Peter Geye, Rhonda Fochs, Lighthouse Road, Book Journey, Sheila DeChantal
I did manage to pick up both of their books at these events.


Next week we have Jess Lourey with her book January Thaw.  Should be fun and YAY, I can be there 😉

  1. Oh my gosh, I bet Geye was amazing – I’ve heard so much about The Lighthouse Road. Fiction Addiction is having so many events this summer and I’ve had to miss quite a few. I’m bummed every single time.

    1. I had a great conversation with him yesterday as he left the library and I was hurrying to get back. He has offered to be one of our Wine and Words authors for 2015 *yippee!!!* he was super easy to talk to and down to earth.

  2. I LOVED the Lighthouse Road and can’t wait for his sequel to come out. As soon as I closed the back cover of it I went online and ordered his first one (yes, the one they are filming on the North Shore right now). I was glad I was able to attend both of these Brown Bag events. Rhonda Fochs was super interesting and I ended up getting her book for my dad for Father’s Day.

  3. Your work for Friends Of The Library must be so rewarding!!
    I live in a little dinky town and even though there are many libraries in the area, it’s not often that we get an author to visit. Just another reason why I want to move to a bigger town and out of the country.

Hmmmm... what do you think?
