We Love Authors!
If you love historical fiction like me, then you will understand my excitement in taking a break from reviewing today to share a special event with you! Last Saturday I attended a Historical Fiction Author Brunch with four fabulous histfic authors! Not only was the author panel spectacular, but four instagramers (bookstagramers) who had never met in real life, engineered a meet up!
Heartfelt thanks to Friends of the Corona Public Library for sponsoring, planning, and hosting this event. Readers in attendance enjoyed a delicious brunch and inspiring talks by three historical fiction authors. We loved hearing some behind the scenes stories about their research and writing process. Meeting an author always endears you to their work!

This is a link to last year’s event at the same location with different authors. Susan Meissner was the moderator of this year’s panel, and she was a guest author at last year’s event.
Have you read a book by any of these authors? What author events have you attended? Which author event was your favorite? If you could attend any author event, which one would you most like to attend?
I’d like to attend a Fredrik Backman or Louise Penney author event.
Happy Reading Book Worms!

“I read because books are a form of transportation, of teaching, and of connection! Books take us to places we’ve never been, they teach us about our world, and they help us to understand human experience.”
