The time has come!
For years now I’ve watched Cheryl and Betsy blog about the Kidlit Drink Night in Manhattan. I’ve watched, pea-green with envy. I mean, I like Kidlit, and I also like drinks! And goodness knows I like gathering with people who like the things I like, to talk about said things.
Then, this fall, Jules picked up the ball and ran with it, in Nashville. Again, I was jealous!
But if Jules could do it, I figured I could too… so I decided Atlanta needed to copycat this grand idea, and host a Kidlit Drink Night of its own.
Now, Ta da! The day is here.
January 8th (this coming Saturday) at 6 pm, some people will gather at the Square Pub, in Decatur (picked largely because it is owned by the talented son of the lovely Deborah Wiles, author-extraordinaire). Maybe we’ll only get a few this first time, maybe we’ll draw a crowd. No way to predict. But we will gather. To talk about books and writing and other semi-related things. Maybe we’ll gossip a little, and share notes, and compare shoes, and sip a drink, and nosh a fried avocado, or a mess of sweet potato tots.
I hope we’ll get a mixed crowd of authors, illustrators, librarians and teachers, readers and reviewers, bloggers and friends. I hope we’ll have fun. I hope we’ll turn this into a regular event.
So spread the word! And join us! Join our Facebook page so you can keep up with future locations.
The only requirement is that you like books for kids and young adults, and that you have a valid ID.
