This Saturday

You're coming, right? We'll see you this Saturday, October 5th, at the Duarte Festival of Authors. It's free and I promise you'll enjoy it.

The festival is sponsored by Friends of the Duarte Library and held at Westminster Gardens, 1420 Santo Domingo Avenue, between Huntington Drive and Central Avenue in Duarte. Follow the signs to parking. It's easy, and I've never had to walk more than about 50 feet from my car to the gates of the park.

Margaret Finnegan and I will share table #8. She'll be selling her book, The Goddess Lounge, and I'll be selling my book, Camelot & Vine. Lessee, what do these books have in common? A strong female protagonist and a sense of humor. Everything else is up for grabs.

Oh, plus, we're going to read your Tarot cards. I don't know if Margaret knows how to do this, but I promise you I do not.

I'll be appearing on a panel! Yup. at 1:15 p.m. at the Pergola Stage, I'll be part of the group of authors discussing the topic, "What's Your Story?" I don't know if we're going to tell our stories or if this title is code for something else, but don't you worry about me. I can talk about pretty much anything, from how to make bubblegum to the best way to sing Welsh torch songs. There's nothing in the paperwork that says I have to know what I'm talking about.

Sounds like it'll be a lot of fun. I can't wait for my Tarot card reading!

Ms M said...

Sounds fun! And have fun! Can you do online Tarot card readings? Like Instant Messaging Tarot? ;-)

Bellis, I see a lot of funny pictures in your future.

Ms M, we'll see how it goes. If it's a success maybe I'll be a Tarot Skyper.

Unfortunately I can't make Duarte, but you're right, I've never seen you at a loss for words.

Enjoy Saturday Petrea sounds like fun. Are those your oranges?

Yes, Deb, the tree in my back yard. Citrus grows really well in southern California, it needs almost no attention.

Lovely composition, Petrea! I like the greyish blurred background to contrast with the colourful subject of the photo. Well done.

Petrea Burchard said...

Thank you, JM.

I love that photo and the rich tones. Hope the festival was a blast - Camelot & Vine + Tarot cards sounds like a perfect cocktail for fun.

Such a hit and fatiguing day. I exhaust myself thinking about it.

That it was, Margaret.
