2014 S.C. Book Festival

Susan M. Boyer, Kendel Lynn, PGB, Cathy Pickens
The 18th annual South Carolina Book Festival, held on May 16-18 at the Columbia Metropolitan Conference Center, was a great success. Christopher Buckley gave the keynote speech. Pat Conroy appeared with his siblings to discuss their family life. Authors of histories and cookbooks as well as fiction appeared. I had the privilege of moderating the Sassy Southern Suspense panel that featured Susan M. Boyer, Kendel Lynn, and Cathy Pickens. All three have written mystery series based in South Carolina--Susan and Kendel's on islands and Cathy's in the upstate. We had a spirited discussion about which area was more humorous.
