If you love books, then chances are you have dreamt of sitting down with your favorite author over a cup of tea. You want to pick their brain, don’t you? Ask them questions about the plot twist you didn’t expect or why they killed off your favorite character. Gerald Everett Jones discusses this why it’s so fun hanging out with our favorite authors with host Desireé Duffy on this episode of the Books That Make You Show.
Book festivals are great opportunities for booklovers to see and meet their favorite authors.. It is fun hanging out and listening to authors and publishing experts, as well as celebrities and business leaders, politician, and more, speak on panels.
The literary crowd at events like the LA Times Festival of Books, or BookCon in New York, and even the Books That Make You annual literary tea, the Beach Bound Book Bash, are a lot of fun to connect with.
However, right now, hanging out at festivals isn’t as easy as it once was because of social distancing and the Coronavirus. That’s why online book festivals like the LA BookFest are so important.
The LA BookFest is an event created for book lovers from around the world, and it brings together authors and thought leaders, journalists, and publishing pros to interact with the reading and writing community.
Gerald Everett Jones is participating in two panels at LA BookFest. The Allure of the Memoir: Telling the Human Story is one of them, as is: Power Pitching Your Manuscript or Screenplay – How to Make them Love Your Story.
