Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Today’s topic is “Book Events/Festivals I’d Love to Go to Someday (Real or Fictional),” suggested by Nandini @ Unputdownable Books. Here’s my list. I’m going to ignore that most of these have either been canceled or took place online this year. I have to assume that they’ll all be back in a year or two, especially since several happen in places I’d love to visit.

  1. National Book Festival, Washington, D.C.
  2. Malice Domestic, Bethesda, Maryland
  3. International Agatha Christie Festival, Torquay, Devon, England
  4. Edinburgh International Book Festival, Edinburgh, Scotland
  5. Savannah Book Festival, Savannah, Georgia
  6. Bloody Scotland, Stirling, Scotland
  7. PEN World Voices Festival, New York City, New York
  8. Hay Festival, Hay-on-Wye, Wales
  9. Jane Austen Festival, Bath, Somerset, England
  10. Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, Los Angeles, California

  1. Well, it certainly isn’t THE Jane Austen Festival in Bath, but the one in Louisville KY is available online still! I went in person a few years ago and it was fun. Here’s a link to the recordings from this year’s festival. That said, I’d love to go to Bath for that one! I visited Bath in ’77 I was 14, a hopelessly uneducated American who’d never heard of Jane Austen. My grandmother was sooooo embarrassed! lol I now love Jane. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFtUQCvZGwRGwBUJ-UI5vaQ?view_as=subscriber

      1. By the time we did the Lake District and I had no clue on Sir Walter Scott, either, she was sure I was illiterate in spite of the novels I’d been reading the whole time! lol Of course, she also learned German and Latin in school in the same state that neglected my education! She born in 1904, me in ’62. Different world.
