“I love book signings: kids waiting in line for you to scribble on their new books, haha!”
― Brian Jacques
I can honestly say I have never been to a book signing. I haven’t made the effort to really search out authors to go to book signings and there aren’t really that many around the area I am living in right now. That all changed a few weeks ago.
I was running some errands and waiting to meet a friend for lunch. I had time to kill and needed to use the bathroom. I believe there is no better place to stop than a bookstore. I was right by the local Barnes and Noble and I ran in.
As soon as I walked in I noticed an author getting ready for a book signing. No one else was really around or paying attention. It was Eowyn Ivey the author of The Snow Child.
I have had this book on my radar, but hadn’t had a chance to check it out yet. I have to say I was really excited to meet her and hear more about her book. She was so delightful. She signed a copy for me. I am really looking forward to reading it in the fall or winter.
Have you read The Snow Child? What are some of your favorite book signing moments?
