Any NC Littens attending the Bookmarks 15th Annual Festival of Books and Authors? I'm planning on attending Saturday, September 7th and would love to meet up. Here's the webpage to see the Festival information: https://www.bookmarksnc.org/festival19

DGRachel UGH! I always forget about this festival. I'll have to see if I can make arrangements to go because OMG! IS V.E. SCHWAB REALLY GOING TO BE THERE?????? And Margaret George? 😭 😭 (edited) 1mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @DGRachel: V.E. Schwab is also going to be at the Chapel Hill Library in September. I will probably see her there as my schedule for the book festival is so full already. You need to attend; it's so much fun!!! 1mo

DGRachel So, I just talked to @dsfisher and I think we are going to see if we can board the dogs that weekend so we don‘t have to stress about them being home alone or making it back in time to pick them up from daycare. Now, I just have to decide who I want to meet more: VE Schwab or Margaret George. 😱😱 1mo

Graciouswarriorprincess @IvoryLunatic Please attend! It‘s so much fun!! 3w
IvoryLunatic @Graciouswarriorprincess Saturday sounds like a lot of fun but I'm working second shift that week so I'll barely be getting sleep every night (can't sleep during the day) so I don't even know if I could stay awake enough to learn something Saturday. Though there are several talks about gun violence, immigration, and diversity that I would love to listen to (I hate that the gun violence and immigration talk overlap though).

I am so blessed to be a part of this on Litsy!

Ask Again, Yes: A Novel | Mary Beth Keane
post image
Pickpick

This novel was simply spectacular. It follows two families across five decades, and takes sharp looks at each character at many points in their lives. Written in the third person, each chapter focuses on the perspective of a different character. It is written in a linear timeline but often includes memories spanning the course of the characters lives. Major themes include mental illness, addiction, and forgiveness.

Simply put, I adored this book.
