Mr. Hill at Southwest Fl Book Festival

Postby This_Girl on Wed Mar 05, 2008 9:36 am

Hey Howdy Hey,
I plan on going on over to the Joe Hill signing at The Southwest Florida Book Festival, however I have conflicting information :(

On myspace, it says 03/14/08 (Friday) and Harper Collins says 03/15/08 (Saturday). Can anyone clarify for me? Perhaps he's putting in 2 days? If it is Friday, I need to get the day off. Ft Myers is almost 2 hours drive for me and I will be bringing my little one.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

The correct date, according to the festival's official site, is indeed on Saturday the 15th. I've gone ahead and changed the information on the MySpace page to reflect the current date for festival -- thanks for noticing that. I'll double check with Joe to make sure he's not going to show up early and just sit in alone in the lobby, but it looks like Saturday is the day. :)

I'm such a dork that I have had my hotmail e mailing me reminders for this weekend since....November-ish, December-ish. I was trying to make it a whole weekend deal, Joe Hill, AND catch a ST Red Sox game.
No such luck on the game :( Those games sell out pronto.

Hey...be sure to check Joe's blog post and the responses. It appears he will have an event Friday and Saturday. I wish I could go.... :cry:

I saw that post. It was amusing. I can't make it to both, so just Saturday's event.

Will do. If we are permitted, I will take photos/video. If I were brave enough and not as shy as I am, I would ask him to give you regulars "a shout out" - Considering who I am offline, I will most likely look at him, smile - and drive my butt home, LOL.
I will do my best to bring you all something worth reading / seeing :D
