My thanks go out to Bethanne Patrick, aka The Book Maven for putting together this amazing contest to allow book bloggers to win a ticket to attend Club Read - a weekend getaway for book lovers with 12 amazing authors in attendance: Adriana Trigiani, Sena Jeter Naslund, Gretchen Rubin, Joyce Maynard, Greg Olear, Matthew Norman, Susan Henderson, Heather Newton, Amy Stolls, Caroline Todd (of Charles Todd), Dolen Perkins-Valdez and Jessica Anya Blau!
The Book Maven said it best, so herewith, her post - enter on her blog!
Club Read 2011 is brought to you by the fine folks at SIBA and Book Club Girl, and it’s a 24-hour readers’ wonderland being held on October 15-16 in Huddleston, Virginia at The Mariner’s Landing Resort and Conference Center. A dozen authors (Adriana Trigiani! Gretchen Rubin! Greg Olear! MORE!) will join a few more dozen readers of all sorts to talk about books, reading, and other passionate pursuits (think cooking, crafts, games, and fitness, to mention a few).
NOTA BENE: FridayReads is a proud sponsor of Club Read 2011–which is why I am providing this blog entry for all.
