I'd like to thank the Memphis Public Library system for the invitation to participate in this past Saturday's Bookstock 2016. The event was held at the Benjamin L. Hooks Library and was a great success. I've enjoyed the privilege of attending many author related festivals over the years in the Chicago area, but I think this event in Memphis was the best I've ever seen. Kudos to the organizers for realizing that promotion, table placement for the authors, engaging attendees to visit with all the authors, and incorporating music, visual and performance art with literacy all lead to a successful day. It was well attended and enjoyed by all, and it was nice meeting so many people. Thanks to those who bought copies of my books, too.
Until next year.
