Summer 2020 Plans

I know, I know…summer is barely over for 2019 and I’m over here planning next year already. Ya darn skippy I am. Literary Love Savannah is and will be my yearly convention that I attend. So every July I will go home and enjoy a small vacation of books, readers and other authors.

Each meal is themed and no one knows who is sponsoring which table – so you pick the theme you want and be surprised!
