I had a really great weekend with two events on Saturday. I attended an art festival and a book event- that included four southern authors. At the art festival I was delighted to see so much local talent. My good friend Elizabeth and her husband had a booth there to sell their Knits & Prints. I admire their work! Big fan here. I also met a new artist who I will be talking about more in a later post. Saturday was the perfect day for an outdoor festival. A neighborhood in Marietta, Georgia-close to the square- holds this event every year called the Cherokee Heights Arts Festival for those of you who are interested. Everyone there was friendly and full of enthusiasm and charm.
After that event I headed over to The Book Exchange for a four-author event of southern writers. When they talked about their books and read excerpts from their stories, I was completely captivated by these extraordinary writers and what they have written about. Recently I have been thinking about showcases southern writers and they have inspired me to go ahead with this project. Each week I will be showcasing a southern author and will be talking a bit about their work. The authors at this event were Deborah Mantella, Bren McClain, Sheryl Parbhoo and J.C. Sassen. Be on the lookout for those posts. I highly recommend these ladies stories.
I hope you all had a lovely weekend and thank you for visiting Layered Pages!
