I’ve attended many book and author events over the years, but nothing compares to Book ‘Em. I’ve participated in events in Virginia and S. Carolina and this year I’m thrilled to attend the first ever Book ‘Em in N. Carolina
. I’m also honored to be on the Book ‘Em committee and will participate in two panel discussions during the event.
