The 14th Annual Heart of Dixie Readers Luncheon will be held on SAT, April 30th, in Huntsville, Alabama. Love Inspired authors Missy Tippens, Debbie Kaufman and I are driving there on Friday and will stay downtown at the beautiful and plush Embassy Suites that adjoins the Von Braun Convention Center. Dinner that night with the HOD chapter--all great folks who are so warm and welcoming. It's always fun to see the gals from the Writing Playground as well as Kathy Bone, who does an outstanding job coordinating the luncheon. So many other friends I've made over the last few years will be there. Can't wait to catch up on what's been happening in their lives.
This year, a familiar face and beloved author will be missing. Beverly Barton, who helped start the chapter, passed away last week. She was a lovely lady who exuded Southern charm and hospitality. Although physically gone from our midst, I know her spirit will be with us throughout the day.
If you're near Huntsville, make your reservation for the readers luncheon. Hope to see you there!
Wishing you abundant blessings!
