Out-Store Book Event

Out-Store is my spin on in-store because the Best of Books bookstore’s Independence weekend event was held on the sidewalk outside of their store, not indoors, and we were all masked up because #COVID19isreal in these streets. The showcase of local literary talent actually ran over three days. I was there on Saturday afternoon, but I believe it started on Thursday of that weekend. Here are some I believe exclusively Saturday images and videos (courtesy the Best of Books and writer Brenda Lee Browne who was, also, a part of the event).

I was there (in purple) with (standing, left) Brenda Lee Browne, author of London Rocks and the Just Write journal to jumpstart your creativity.
Just Write books and mugs (the latter created locally by Cedars Pottery).
Pictured in the foreground is Farida Issac’s latest, Live Out Loud: A 90 Day Guided Journal for Women Ready to Live their Best Lives.
Farida Isaac also brought her children’s book Calypso Princess: the Grand Celebration and the companion activity book.
Janice Sutherland was out with her book This Woman Can! The No Bullsh*t Guide for Women Who Lead. This is the first upload to the new Wadadli Pen YouTube channel.
Other videos from the event have been added to the Wadadli Pen channel. Check the ‘Book Event, Independence 2020 Playlist’.
T. Lerisa Simon was out with Gift of God: Finding Treasure in the Darkness and Lemon Tree: Surviving Miscarriage and Other Things We don’t discuss.
Joy Lawrence.

I am pictured here with the original 2014 edition, left, of the Burt Award winning title Musical Youth, and the 2019 second edition, right.

Also present was The Boy from Willow Bend.

That’s me at the end. I am Joanne C. Hillhouse. I write books. I run Wadadli Pen. I blog here. If you use anything from this post, credit where due and link back. If you’re a writer who participated in this event, don’t see yourself, and have a picture of vid to share, you can send to wadadlipen@gmail.com Will do my best to post as soon as time allows. #buylocallit
