Hope those of you who are mothers had a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday. My day started a little early, at Huck’s baseball game at 8:30. The coaches sweetly compensated for the early Mother’s Day game time by bringing all the moms hot coffee and tea and pastries. In the afternoon, I did some reading under the warm sun, sitting on our back porch (still working on Miss Buncle’s Book). Later, we picked up Thoughtful Husband’s mom and went to my parents’ house where Thoughtful Husband and my dad cooked dinner for us. Tom and Huck even made me gifts — a picture frame from Huck and and scrapbook from Tom. It was, all in all, a lovely Mother’s Day.
Today, it’s back to business. I’m meeting with the graphic designer Wednesday to go over my corrections for the Dante catalogue and am beginning to prepare for the Gold Rush Book Fair. The fair takes place this Saturday, May 16 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Nevada County Fairgrounds in Grass Valley, CA. Grass Valley is a lovely old Gold Rush town, nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. It’s a charming place for a weekend getaway.
Here’s a photo of one of the streets of the town, which in addition to hosting this weekend’s book fair, is also home to many marvelous bookstores and fine restaurants.
Come on up for the weekend. You can go to the book fair Saturday and then browse the numerous bookshops to your heart’s content on Sunday. You’ll have great spring weather, an historic town for a backdrop, and good food to eat. If you’d like to free passes to the book fair, please leave a comment below or email me at: info AT bookhuntersholiday DOT com. I can either mail the passes to you are leave them at the gate at the book fair for you to pick up.
Hope to see you there!
