New Orleans Author Event

Last year I saw a post over at Cecile's place - she had attended a multi-author booksigning here in New Orleans. It looked like fun, and I was disappointed that I missed a signing here in my fair city...I was thrilled when I found out this is not a one-time thing!

Author Heather Graham hosts a yearly author workshop here in New Orleans over Labor Day Weekend - Writers for New Orleans. This year, a few bloggers have decided to meet using this event as an excuse (like we need an excuse, right?). I don't know where most of you Book Bloggers hail from, but if you're anywhere near New Orleans, why don't you think about coming in over Labor Day weekend? The loose plan is to meet for dinner and drinks Saturday night (location to be determined) and maybe have coffee or brunch before the 11:30 booksigning at the Hotel Monteleone.

The schedule of events can be found here. Some of the authors attending thus far are:
Helen A. Rosburg
Heather Graham aka Shannon Drake
L. A. Banks
Corrine De Winter
Silver James
J. A. Konrath
Lisa Mannetti
Michael Meeske
Linda Conrad
Mary Sella
F. Paul Wilson
Kate Poole
Harley Jane Kozak
Kathleen Pickering
Tina Wainscott aka Jaime Rush
Kathy DePalo

You can bring your own books and they'll have books for purchase as well. Hey - it's a 3-day weekend, think about coming, it's going to be fun! If you can't come Saturday night for dinner (and drinks!), just come for the signing on Sunday or vice versa...

At this point it's all pretty much still loosey-goosey as far as plans go, but if you're interested, e-mail me at bookaddictpatti at cox dot net!
