I am grateful to have been one of the authors invited to participate in Booktopia 2016, a celebration of authors and readers. This two day event was hosted by Northshire Bookstore in Manchester, Vermont, one of the finest independent bookstores in America, located in one of New England’s most charming communities.
The heart and soul of this event are the gracious and well read participants who come from all over the country to attend. They are an exceptional group of devoted and intelligent readers. The program includes a book trivia contest, in which teams of readers and authors compete. If it were not for a category of questions with answers that included, The Pokey Little Puppy and The Saggy Baggy Elephant, I would have been held scoreless.
