And, of course, Jon and I will have our work there too.

Then there are the Poets.  Reading their work and selling their books.  Mary Kellogg will be there with her new poetry book “How to Dance”.  And Doug Anderson, with his latest book is “Medicine Horse”.   Tom Adkins will have his latest book  and Kate Rantilla will be there with her first book.

And Jon and Red and Fate will be herding the sheep and you can meet the donkeys Lulu and Fanny.  And you’ll also meet my new pony Chloe.  Flo will no doubt be in many laps and the hens will be pecking around looking for bugs and things to eat.
