Happy Monday, folks! Just popping in to let you locals know that I’ll be joining local authors, publishers and crafters at FestiBooks, a cool event taking place this weekend at Workantile, 118 S. Main, in Ann Arbor. (We’re in the midst of a massive heatwave here in Michigan, so it’s important to note that this event is taking place indoors, in an air conditioned venue.)
Festibooks starts Friday with a celebration of “Romance and Rockets,” but I’ll be there from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday on the “YA & DIY” day. It’s going to be tricky to haul my magazines and looms downtown while the streets are shut down for the city’s multiple art festivals, but I’m going to work it out because I’m very excited to meet all the book-loving crafters who will converge in Arbor on Saturday. The city has a great shuttle system to make attending this weekend’s event pretty smooth. You can research your best parking options here.
I’m really looking forward to meeting the event co-organizer, David Erik Nelson, author of “Snip, Burn, Solder, Shred: Seriously Geeky Stuff to Make with Your Kids” and all-round creative dude.
See you Saturday!
