We love Wordstock here at Hawthorne Books. We have all sorts of events slated for this year’s festival and I’ve laid them all out for you here. Every year we have a booth at the Book Fair in the main hall and that’s where you’ll find publisher Rhonda Hughes, senior editor Adam O’Connor Rodriguez and myself for a large part of the weekend.

I was on my iPad last night, and my fingers were too cold to type pleporry!  I would love to read any of these: Pure, The Divergent Series, Hold Still, Thirteen Reasons, Beautiful Creatures, and Just One Day. So many good books!
