Last night I attended a panel discussion on the desegregation of public libraries in the south. It was very interesting and I really enjoyed it. When it was over, they gave everyone two free books! I can't wait to read them 😊

Lilac Girls: A Novel | Martha Hall Kelly

I've been wanting to read this for quite awhile, but my small town library doesn't have it, and I'm trying so hard not to buy any brand new books until I've read a bunch of my very many unread books. Today I found it at Goodwill for 79 cents! I just love book shopping at Goodwill and thrift stores! Anyone else? Is anyone reading this now?

1001BooksPodcast Just finished this and I really enjoyed it. You can tell it‘s the author‘s first book but the story is still great 2y
Jes143 @1001BooksPodcast, thank you for commenting! I can't wait to start it 😊 2y

Petty: The Biography | Warren Zanes
post image

I absolutely loved hearing Warren Zanes speak about writing Petty: The Biography. It is one of the best biographies I've ever read! So much interesting information about one of my all time favorite artists. It was really cool meeting him and chatting with him for a few minutes too. He said he thinks he'd like to move here. That would be awesome!

LisaJo That‘s one of my favorite things about the book festival here in Alabama. You get to talk to the authors a little longer than at some book festivals. Are you always got some really interesting notes in your books. 2y
Jes143 I absolutely loved the whole day! I will definitely be back next year! Just as I was leaving, Scholastic called to tell me I had won a tote bag full of books for my boys too! Such a wonderful day! Let me know if any cool book events happen up your way, I'd love to try to come 😊 2y
rather_be_reading awesome! 2y
Kimzey @Jes143 So glad you came to the Alabama Book Festival! It was a great day! 2y
Jes143 @Kimzey, it was! I really enjoyed it! It was my first time going and I already can't wait until next year's 😊 2y

It was such on honor to meet Anthony Ray Hinton and to hear him speak. He spent 30 years on Alabama's death row for crimes he did not commit. His story is a compelling example of how broken our justice system is and why we need to end the death penalty. Read his book, The Sun Does Shine. You won't regret it.

RaimeyGallant What an experience! And welcome to Litsy! #LitsyWelcomeWagon Some of us put together Litsy tips to help new Littens navigate the site. It's the link in my bio on my page in case you need it. Or if you prefer how-to videos, @chelleo put some together at the link in her bio. @LitsyWelcomeWagon 2y
Jes143 Thank you so much @RaimeyGallant! I'll go check them out now 😊 2y
