Hello everyone, Patricia Davids here again!
Coming up on October 5th and 6th I am excited to announce that I will be in Shipshewana, Indiana with fellow Amish authors Sarah Price and Jennifer Beckstrand. We will be celebrating the release of our Christmas collaborative, The Amish Christmas Letters.
J. Farvers Christian Books and Gifts, 451 S Van Buren St, Shipshewana, Indiana will be hosting a book signing for all three of us. The book signing is from 2-4pm, and tickets will be available to come back after the event for an evening of pizza and pie with us as well. One lucky fan will also have the chance to win a basket of goodies from yours truly. Follow the link below to find out more!
Authors Laura Bradford and Jennifer Spredemann will also be joining us for an Amish tea party, short Q&A session and another book signing. This event will take place in an Amish home, so seating is limited, and tickets must be purchased beforehand. I hope that some of you are coming. If you missed the advanced ticket sales, perhaps you might catch up with us afterward!
I have never visited this part of Amish country and I’m really looking forward to our event. I’m bringing my daughter and my grandson Joshua with me for a fun family road trip. (It’s 12 hrs from Hope, KS to Shipshewana.) If you have suggestions for what we should see in the area, even if it’s a detour of a few hours, let me know. We are taking a week to see the sights and enjoy making memories.
Maybe you don’t live in or haven’t visited the area, so you can’t offer suggestions. If that is the case, then share with me a memorable trip you made with your grandchildren or with your grandmother. My most memorable trip with Josh was to Tulsa, OK to see their amazing aquarium. The sea life was awesome but the most memorable part was because I made Josh the navigator. He had the map, (this was before GPS) and he got us lost. Well, I knew we were still in Oklahoma, but it took us a while to get back to the right highway.
