are you in the gaithersburg, md area?

i’ll be appearing at the gaithersburg book festival this saturday, may 21st. (yes, the day of the rapture). the event goes from 10:00am to 6:00pm and will be held at the gaithersburg city hall grounds, gaithersburg, maryland 20877. admission is free, and so is parking (but it’s limited).

they’ve asked me to be the keynote speaker (which is an incredibly huge honor for me, and likely a mistake on their part). i’ll be speaking at 4:00pm and signing books afterwards.

also, the liz logelin foundation will have a table at the event, and i’ll be there most of the day signing books and sharing info about what the foundation does to help families in need (and of course, accepting donations if you want to make one).

as an extra incentive to stop by the foundation table, i’ll be giving away 5 copies of my book, autographed by me, and scribbled on by maddy. the giveaways will take place before 1:00pm so stop by early. if you don’t win a copy and you still want one, barnes & noble will be on site selling a limited number of books.

and be on the lookout for brooke and maddy. they’ll be roaming the event, likely spending most of the day in the children’s village.
