Amy Byrnes, Teicia Gaupp and Cristie Ritz King are the special guests on Thursday, as River Road Books hosts the women of Jersey Moms Blog.
Here’s what might just be a first for River Road Books, the resolutely indie bookstore that’s regularly welcomed in-person appearances by a hard-copy host of authors in the mystery, history, young adult, self-help, romance and children’s genres.
This Thursday evening, October 23, the local propagators of the printed page host a trio of writers — none of whom apparently have a printed book to promote. In fact, these three women have made their names as bloggers, that peculiar subculture of humanity that some dead-tree diehards blame in part for turning their world topsy-turvy.
While there’s no word as to whether the featured guests will be signing tablet and smartphone screens with a silver Sharpie, they’ll be happy to read from their works and discussing the virtual-world vehicle that’s brought their words to thousands of faithful readers: Jersey Moms Blog.
