March 2018 Local Tourist: Do Anything Fun in March?

Posted March 30, 2018 by shooting in Cincinnati / 29 Comments

It’s time for our March edition of Local Tourist – did you do anything fun in your neck of the woods? Share it on your blog and link up below (or link up any other posts from the past month that fit!) As usual, I’m co-hosting this link-up with the lovely Dara from Not in Jersey. Be sure to check out her blog!

Author Mackenzi Lee

This past month was actually full of author events for me, and by full, I mean two! That’s a lot for me though. I live right by Cincinnati, Ohio, so we do get some good authors our way (I know I’m lucky with that) but I don’t always get a chance to go – or they are authors whose books I’ve never read. However, in March, I got to see a talk done by Neil Gaiman as well as an author event with the lovely, hilarious Mackenzi Lee. I recommend both authors – their books and seeing them live, if you get the chance!

If you’d like to see what I thought of these events, I’ve actually done two re-caps of them already!

  1. Ah! I’m so happily jealous of all the events you’ve been able to go to recently! 😀 I wish more authors I know would come to New Hampshire! Maybe this summer… the winter months are always pretty rough around here. Great post!

  2. I wish our bookstores got authors in. They only have local authors and frankly, I don’t like any of them. Barnes & Noble USED to get some cool authors but they apparently nixed that so we don’t get any now… unless it’s a local author who asks to come which is lame.

  3. I love that you were able to get to not just one but two speaking events this month! That’s wonderful. I haven’t heard of Mackenzie but will look for her books 🙂 Hope you have a great weekend, Lauren, and happy Easter if you are celebrating! XOXO

  4. Oh that is awesome that you got to see two authors! A local bookstore here puts on great author events, and I hope to go to more in the coming year.

  5. I saw Neil Gaiman in DC last summer and loved the event! I liked that it was a more loosely structured evening with a few things planned but mostly just flowing with how the audience was feeling.

  6. How fun that you got to go to two events this month! I haven’t done too much around the city lately since it’s been so cold and rainy! Hopefully it will warm up a bit in April!

  7. I didn’t do anything exciting locally, but I did get to wine taste and stay by the beach earlier this month, which was lovely.

    I love author events! Usually if it’s an author I love, they’re pretty witty in person, too. Glad you enjoyed! 🙂

  8. I love author events, they’re the best. 🙂 It’s nice that you live in an area where you get authors coming through. We get a few through here as well, but a lot of time I miss them if I’m not watching the bookstores’ event pages!

    I am jealous! A lot of author events go to the phoenix area, but not really here in Tucson. I did travel once to see a favorite author and it added such depth to the book. I loved it!

    That’s so amazing and exciting that you have author events by you!! We never get any near us….except for RT this year YAY….and usually if I want to attend one I have to go back home to Cali. I’m so happy for you! Hopefully there’s more wonderful book events for you later on this year!
