The Fox Cities Book Festival-2011


As you all know I love books.  But what I love more is hearing authors talk about their books.  I love knowing what was behind the stories, what got them to write, how they write and all the other interesting things that come out of a great discussion. 

In the Fox Cities we are lucky enough to have the Fox Cities Book Festival.  There are amazing authors from all over the country and the selection covers every genre there is.  I will not drone on and on about how great it is because my words will not do it justice.  It is something you have to experience.  Make a point to get out and see atleast one author.  You will not be sorry!

If you were able to see Luis Alberto Urrea you were able to experience storytelling at its finest.  Urrea was both dynamic and funny.  I took some very important lessons home that night and will forever to grateful for sharing  that time with Urrea and two of my dear friends.  Cherish those moments, as the fest comes but once a year.  Urrea was a great kickoff to the fest (as he is done speaking at the fest) and I look forward to all the other amazing things to come the rest of the week!
