Philly Lit and Breathless Reads Recap

Hey Guys! Just got back to the real world for an event-filled three day weekend.

Saturday kicked everything off with an afternoon of writing at one of our favorite indies, Chester County Books and Music. Although admittedly, Donna and I did sneak off for sushi at one point.

After sushi (tofu for me) and writing and a little book shopping we headed over to the Iron Hill Brewery for official Philly Lit Night shenanigans.

Donna Gamabale, Amy Garvey (COLD KISS)
Sara T.K. DeSabato, Janine Burgan

And the most memorable moment of the night...when newcomer Tony arrived, he walked around  holding a sign with Simon's twitter handle on it until he found us! Awesome--also a really great way to meet us!
After Iron Hill the FNC and our last standing Philly Lit Night member, Paul Joseph went for coffee.

Sunday was Penguin's Breathless Reads Tour at The Doylestown Bookshop (another fabulous indie!). It was super fun getting to meet Marie Lu (LEGEND) and Andrea Cremer (THE NIGHTSHADE SERIES) for the first time. And so nice to see Beth Revis (ACROSS THE UNIVERSE) and Jessica Spotswood (BORN WICKED) again.

OMG captioning is getting exhausting--Jamie, Vivian, Beth, Jenna, Marie, Jessica, Andrea and Me!

Following the book signing, Jamie, Jenna, Vivian and Yan (Books By Their Cover) and I headed off to dinner.

My night ended by heading over to Sara's for a mini President's Day Writing Retreat which may or may not have been productive. I'm going to say productive. So all in all, awesome weekend.

And now...I have papers to grade.
