Scenes from the Book Festival Circuit


Last week, Jen A. Miller caught up with Curious George at the Ocean County Book Festival in central New Jersey. Tomorrow, the author of The Jersey Shore, Atlantic City to Cape May is sticking a bit closer to home—apparently, the Collingswood Book Festival is just two blocks away from her home.

And here’s another picture from last weekend’s Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance trade show in Mobile, Alabama, where Helen Hemphill introduced herself to August State University professor Michael N. Searles, better known as “Cowboy Mike.” Her new novel, The Adventurous Deeds of Deadwood Jones, is based in part on the life of Nat Love, one of the most famous African-American cowboys. (Check out his autobiography…)
