Upcoming Events for Lovers of Books

Our annual Readers Luncheon is November 5.  Not only do we have the fantastic Victoria Dahl as our keynote speaker and the always amazing Jennifer Echols as the welcome speaker, but we also have a killer list of authors who will be hosting tables.  This is a great event, and Birmingham is fortunate to have it.

However, it isn't the only great Birmingham event for readers.  The first weekend in February, mystery fans delight in Murder in the Magic City - a one day readers convention at the Homewood Library featuring mystery writers discussing their books and love of writing.

Hot on the heels of Murder in the Magic City is Southern Voices hosted by the Hoover Library.  Southern Voices is a four-day conference exploring Southern culture as reflected in contemporary arts.  The Saturday programming features Southern authors who share their stories.  This event sells out within days of tickets going on sale.

Shortly after Southern Voices, the Heart of Dixie RWA chapter holds its annual Readers Luncheon.  This event always pleases by bringing together the best romance writers in the area.

If you are a reader, you couldn't be in a better location.  Get your calendar out so you can make sure you don't miss these outstanding events.  Did I leave any out?  What other opportunities are near by for readers?

Don't forget to buy your tickets to our Readers Luncheon by November 1.  They are $35 and can be purchased through the Southern Magic website.  Authors in attendance include:
