Barbara Vey's Reader Appreciation Luncheon 2015!

Debby Giusti (R) with Barbara Vey (L) at
her Fourth Annual Readers Appreciation

Anyone who knows Barbara Vey knows that she hosts wonderful events. This weekend was the Fourth Annual Barbara Vey Readers Appreciation Luncheon in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Barbara outdid herself to ensure everyone had the time of their lives! 

Debby Giusti (L) with NY Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen (R) 
of Rizzoli and Isles fame.

I flew in on Friday and roomed with fellow Love Inspired Suspense author and RITA finalist, Katy Lee. 

(L to R) Love Inspired Suspense Author Katy Lee,
Love Inspired Historical Author Winnie Griggs and
Love Inspired Suspense Author Debby Giusti
represented Love Inspired Books at the luncheon!

We enjoyed dinner that night at The Packing Company, compliments of the WisRWA Chapter who treated the 61 authors to a yummy dinner. After the meal, we bused back to the hotel for a fun Q&A with readers. 

My table.

Tote bags decorated the chairs at my table.
Saturday, the authors were in the ballroom early to set up their tables and get ready for the readers. Doors opened at 10:30 AM, and the readers scrambled to find their tables and connect with their favorite authors. I loved meeting and getting to know the delightful women who sat at my table. 

My wonderful table! Thanks, ladies, for making
the day so special!
Author baskets were given away during lunch with even more raffle drawings after lunch. A book signing followed. 

Lots of author giveaways!

 Thanks, Barbara, for a wonderful event and a chance to get to know so many readers. 

Happy Reading!

Wishing you an abundant blessings!
Debby Giusti
