We went for a weekend adventure, my husband and I, to a northern Michigan location famous for cherries, beaches, and a Great Lake. Of course we went for all those things, but the main event was at Dog Ears, the bookstore in Northport. Owner Pamela and her dog Sarah were hosting author Bonnie Jo Campbell who came to talk about her book Once Upon a River.
I read the book earlier this spring and loved it, though parts of it were scary and other parts were hard to read. So it was fun to meet the author and learn how this book came to be.
We visited the lighthouse there and wandered on the beach.
But the big event on Sunday was back in Northport at the bookstore where I got to meet Pamela. She and I have been reading the blogs of each other for years now and it was so good to meet her, though we only had a few moments to talk.
And just as special, I got to meet and pet Sarah, Pamela’s dog and perhaps the real owner of Dog Ears books. Sarah met us at the door, as she does every visitor, got her ears rubbed and then moved on to the next arrival. She has a very good job, does Sarah.
Thank you Pamela for hosting this event! It was so much fun to listen to the author, and exceptionally fun to meet you and Sarah!
