Kat's Got my Tongue...or at Least my Attention



Kathryn Magendie's in town. Yehaaaaaaaaaaaw! We're celebrating our first issue of Rose & Thorn going live AND she's here speaking at the Louisiana Book Festival. Can't tell you how good it is to see and visit with her. [Somebody remind me later to repeat what she asked me when we first saw each this visit. LMBFBO!]

So...I'll be hearing her book talk today. I know she'll do great. The author party last night was so.much.fun. Our husbands may just be long lost brothers. I got to scratch another thing off my bucket list -- meeting Wally Lamb! *More on that later. I'll be posting some cool notes and photos next week.

Okay, y'all have a great Saturday. And don't forget to check out Rose & Thorn Journal when you get a chance. Thanks to all of you who hosted information about or "open house" at your blogs. We've got the best blog friends on the planet!

What's on tap for you today?

It looks like I may end up being a tourist and going to Avery Island today... of course, that means missing the Book Fest :-(

Angie Ledbetter said...

Thank you Tabitha.

JKS - Avery Island's fun. Get you some Tabasco!! But the Book Fest will miss you. Expecting 20,000 today since Tigers have an open date. :)

Congratulations! So wish I could go to the Book Fest,unfortunately having to play nurse to my hubby(recovering from shoulder surgery).
Welcome to Cajun Country,Kathryn,you picked a good weather weekend to come down.
Know you'll "pass a good time,down here,Cher!" PEACE.

Moon Willow - Hope hubby heals soon! Plan on coming to the Book Fest next year. Great food, local musicians, exhibits, speakers...all under the sprawling oaks in front of the Capitol.

Angie, wish I could be there. But NC is some distance away. :) Have fun.

We're going to get a dog.

Fantastic. I could hear the joy in the words. Can't wait to hear more.

Robyn - NC is far! That's where Kat had to drive in from. :)

Not kidding Suzy. Going to hear Kat speak in just a bit. Will post lotsa details later. You would love the book fest.

It seems to me, you Southern girls have all the stinking fun!

If you MUST know, I am SHOVELING snow.

That's right.


Hope you girls had a blast.

Sounds like a divine time. Enjoy!

Avery Island is tons o' fun - just smelling that Tabasco plant makes me eyes water.

I hope you and Kat had a good time at the book fest - I'm so bummed that I missed it... I was supposed to be home by now. But I'll be in New Orleans by Wednesday, which is something indeed.

P.S. I just noticed that your followers are called "Gumbo Writer Goobers" - hilarious! "Goober" is what my mom called me, growing up.
