The theme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl is about book events and festivals you’d like to attend someday. It can be real or fictional.
The book festival in Edinburgh. Last year I read about it and thought it sounded like a great event; check it out HERE. They set up a specialty created tent village filled with books. Last year there were over 900 authors present. This August 15-31 the festival will be online. I would love to attend this in person and enjoy the sights, food and weather. This is a real event but a fantasy trip as we can’t travel overseas right now. For us it’s the virus precautions as well as having an elderly dog. If Aja can’t go, we don’t go.
A fantasy book event I would enjoy would feature authors I love, their latest books available for purchase, a question answer event and lots of local food. We have to see and hear from Jane Harper, Kate Morton, Chris Hammer, Tana French, J.K. Rowling, Ann Cleeves and I’m sure my fried brain can think of more but not this second!
Since this event doesn’t exist and I can’t travel it would be hosted in a place I would love to visit one day. Wales, Brisbane, Melbourne or Newcastle (so I could visit Ft MacQuarie) Australia, anyplace in New Zealand, Cumbria county England …..
Fantasy: Another bookish event would be on where my favorite chefs feature, giving talks about their cooking and maybe food preps and demonstrations. Obviously their cookbooks would be on sale. I’d love to see Nigel Slater, Curtis Stone, Nigella Lawson, Mary Berry, Jamie Oliver, Jacques Pépin and Julia Child. Just to name a few.
I don’t have ten this week but these are a few I like. Where would you like to visit and which authors or books are in your lineup?
