Picking Up The Pieces Event Recap

     On Friday October 14th, I attended an event at The Dolphin Bookshop in Port Washington, NY.  It was a wonderful bookstore and spectacular event!  The event lasted from 5:30-9:00 and featured SEVEN different authors including: Gae Polisner, Lena Roy, Arlaina Tibensky, Nova Ren Suma, Michael Grant, Matt Blackstone, and Michael Northrop.  I was only familiar with one or two of the authors at first but, as they all went along with their readings, I really started to like their books!  I'll probably be buying them all eventually, so you guys should defintetely check them out!
     The event was planned and run by Gae Polisner (who happens to be super nice :) .  She did an amazing job!  She held up a card with a specific topic on it and all the authors (including herself) were required to read a passage from their book that related to that topic.  All of the authors had a great sense of humor, so it was a really great event!  Between readings, there were a few breaks to mingle and have refreshments.  I had a few of my books signed (including one for you)!  All in all, I had a great time!  Thanks to Gae Polisner for doing such a great job!  Don't miss the next event at the dolphin! (It can be found here and here)

I have a signed copy of And Then Things Fall Apart by Arlaina Tibensky to give away along with some signed swag from the event!  (Thanks to Arlaina for donating her book!)



  1. Thanks! Glad you enjoyed the event! Such a pleasure meeting you!

  2. Love the photos you got and was such much fun to have you there! For those reading, enter this contest. Because Arlaina's book is one you DO NOT want to miss. It's funny and sad and smart and a tiny bit H-O-T in places. I loved it!


What did you think of my post? Have you read any of the books I may have spoke about? Do you agree with what I said? Etc. I love hearing from my readers!!
