One of My Favorite Bookselling Events

Last year, a craft fair vendor suggested that I sell my books at a winery. A winery? But my mysteries have nothing to do with wine. She assured me it didn’t matter, and she was right.

This past Sunday, I spent the day at Township 7’s “Art on the Vine” event. Despite the heat, people came to listen to music, drink wine, and support local artists. Sitting in front of the vines and drinking wine while I chatted with customers was one of the most relaxing and fun bookselling experiences I’ve had.

By the way, Township 7 also has a  winery along Penticton BC’s Naramata Bench, and they also hold Art on the Vine days, along with other events. Check them out HERE.
