Our Life With Pie

Writers, how can we live without coffee and dessert to fuel our imaginations?

Here at The Book-in-Hand Roadshow, we indulge often.
What better reason for sweets than an anniversary party and you're invited.

To say thank you to all who have supported
The Book-in-Hand Roadshow, we’re holding a light-hearted spring afternoon soiree. Please stop by Chateau LaMair on Sunday afternoon, April 7 between 2 – 5pm for this casual get-together celebrating the creative spirit and kicking off the third year of The Book-In-Hand Roadshow.

... Eat some pie (bring a pie or pie recipe, if you wish)

... Meet the guest speakers from previous roadshow events - local authors, editors, photographers, cover designers, proof readers, and publicists.

... “Writing Your Pie-ography” - New York Times best-selling author and writing coach, Jennifer Basye Sander will lead a 30 minute creative writing session - this promises to be an enlightening experience for you writers who crave discovery. (participation optional)

... Mix-n-mingle with BIH roadies and creative folks who have lived and worked at Chateau LaMair.

... Announcement of future dates/locations of The Book-in-Hand Roadshow.

... Unveiling of the award-winning Dictionary of Publishing Terms: What Every Writer Needs to Know (yes, it's true - the ink's barely dry and it already won an international award!)

·  Indoor Garage Sale – from the pages of author Amy Sedaris’ book I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence, Chapter One “The Art of Hospitality,” there will be a table of treasures that call out to you…“don’t-need-it-but-gotta-have-it”
·  Stair-stepping – unlike Tony Robbin’s fire walking – here’s your chance to test the new stairs to the Chateau’s Suite Retreat overlooking the vineyard (1,450 square feet of creative space in search of a tenant).

RSVP required so we can get a head count for pie! Email Ingrid at
(This is a private event. The address will be provided in a confirmation email after you RSVP.)
Join us to enjoy a slice of pie in the spirit of creativity and sharing.
