Ann B. Ross and Robert Inman @ Fountainhead, Friday & Saturday
If you’re anywhere near Hendersonville this weekend, you may be gravitating to its semi-annual festival of literary activity, Bookapalooza, a multi-author event on Sat., Sept. 28; and to an Ann B. Ross talk on Fri., Sept. 27 at Fountainhead Books.
Ross is, of course, the author of the Miss Julia series, a character-rich, witty immersion in small-town society (patterned after pre-boom Hendersonville). Her latest novel is “Miss Julia Stirs up Trouble.” Tickets are $5 and act as a coupon towards any purchase in the store on the day of the event.
Guess who’s coming to the community book party, Bookapalooza, 7 p.m., Sat.? Authors Robert Inman, Ryan Jo Summers, and Laurie Bakke!
Inman’s new novel, “The Governor’s Lady,” is a suspense novel about a woman’s entrance into politics. See Inman’s website.
Summers is the author of “Whispers in the Heart,” a romantic and mystical involving a horse trainer. Bakke has a new cookbook, “Laurie Bakke’s Cookbook.”
Tickets to Bookapalooza are $11. There will be refreshments, authors, roving trivia, swag bags, more. "Wear purple for an extra surprise," the booksellers say. "Tickets almost always sell out for this event, so don't wait. And, we'd like to thank our sponsors The Bee Hive, Homestead Linens, and Random House Publishers!"
In addition to getting to meet the authors, there will be Roving Trivia, a Scavenger Hunt, drawings, refreshments, and lots of goodies. All purchases are 20% off the night of Bookapalooza. Sponsors include The Bee Hive, Homestead Linens, and Random House Publishers.
