Books In Bloom 2015


I attended the Books In Bloom event in Eureka Springs, Arkansas again this year and am happy to report both weather and turn-out was good despite thunderstorms and heavy rains the two days previous.

Met some wonderful, interesting authors including the internationally best-selling author Tess Gerritsen who writes the Rizzoli & Isles series as well as many, many others. Her website is here

Kimberly and James Dean, authors of the children’s book series Pete The Cat, were very entertaining and drew a large audience, many of whom were young ones tightly clutching their personal copies of Pete’s various adventures eager for autographs. Listening to the two authors during their presentation, there could be no doubt Kimberly and James were in their happy, sweet zone doing what they love best.

Many regional authors also participated including Nancy Hartney (Washed In The Water); Abby Burnett (Gone To The Grave); Margaret Jones Bolsterli (Kaleidoscope-Redrawing an American Family Tree); Robert Cochran & Suzanne McCray (Lights! Camera! Arkansas! and Our Own Sweet Sounds).

For a list of all Books In Bloom participants both this year and past you may visit Books In Bloom, Eureka Springs.

I’m already looking forward to Books In Bloom 2016 on the grounds of the historic Crescent Hotel in beautiful Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

  1. I am greatly encouraged by the growth of art and literary festivals all over. I attended Charlotte’s Senoria Festival and was impressed with the quality of the presentations and displays.

  2. What a wonderful event, and so many prestigious authors, including Tess Gerritson. We have several literary festivals and book fayres in the UK, but I confess, I’ve yet to attend one. You were certainly fortunate with the weather, too.

  3. Jack, thanks for your comments and summary of Books in Bloom and the mention of regional authors. (smile) This event seems to improve every year and does offer a pleasant venue aimed at readers – every author’s real love. Cheers for our local festivals of all types.
