Starting in 2001 the Bookies (as many as could go) have been attending the Literary Sojourn in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. It occurs in September or October and is hosted by the Bud Werner Memorial Library. We enjoy a buffet luncheon after which 5 different authors will talk to us about what it is like for them to write a book. Afterwards we are invited to meet the authors and have them sign our books. At the end of the day we eat, shop and talk about the authors. Lastly, we return to our condo, put on our jammies and stay up late talking about life!
