What My Thanksgiving Looks Like Now
For many, many years now I’ve hosted Thanksgiving for my family. What’s so fun is that I live in a tiny condo and as the family as grown it’s become more and more of an adventure cooking a whole turkey dinner and then slamming more and more people around my tiny table and hoping I don’t piss off my downstairs neighbors too much with the increasing number of kids running around my place.
My Dream Author-Only Thanksgiving Dinner
If my family couldn’t make it to place and I had to invite my author friends, I would hope that all my local author friends would join me. Maybe I could even convince Jim C. Hines and Diana Gabaldon to join us for the day. Although, after my reaction to meeting Diana in May, maybe that isn’t a good idea!
One of the other stops on the hop is Imagine Other Worlds with Authors, a book signing event that I help organize. I.O.W.A. is the brainchild of local Cedar Rapids authors, Aaron Bunce and Jed Quinn as well a two bookworms, Dana Beatty and myself. This year, we are adding a third organizer to our merry band, Amanda Zhorne, who is a a huge fan of reading, books and authors. We are excited to have her as part of our team.
