I'm headed to Chicago for work. So, of course, I needed to prepare and find the best bookish places to try to squeeze in between work events! See what I discovered!
I've often thought about what it would be like to open a book and have it magically pull me into its pages. If you're a reader, you've probably thought the same thing at some point or imagined what it would be like to walk the streets of a novel or converse with the characters of history.
I spend a lot of time in airports. So, I appreciate it when airports have art for my eyes weary of looking at fast food chains and rows and rows of industrial chairs. I've seen paintings and sculptures. But, I never imagined an airport would have a display that would send a chill down my spine...
Tomorrow, I am going to Staunton, VA, about 2 hours south of where I live in Northern Virginia, for a book signing for The Travelers at the Sacred Circle Bookstore. Just a few months ago I visited Staunton for the first time. As I walked the streets, I fell in love the quaint small town – the classic, narrow 3 story buildings pressed together lining brick sidewalks, the large windows inviting me into the stores, the street lamps, the restaurants. (It also helped that Staunton’s main street has 3 book stores in a one block radius, one of which is Sacred Circle.)
