GCLS! GCLS! GCLS! That’s been my mantra for the last seven or eight days. The Golden Crown Literary Society Conference kicks off every July for four-plus days of fun and frolic, all about the books we love. This year it’s a little closer to home for me than in years past, in more ways than one. It’s at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown, as close to the point as you can stay.

GCLS 2019 Pittsburgh

I was born and raised 40 miles north of Pittsburgh in New Castle, PA. My folks and my brothers still live there.

I live about 2.5 hours away from The Steel City now, in north-central Ohio. It was an easy drive over mostly state routes through Ohio and maybe six or eight minutes of West Virgina to get here.

The conference kicks off tomorrow and runs through midday Sunday. I’m really looking forward to four days of nothing but books…and friends, laughter and fun. If you’re coming to the con, I can’t wait to see you.

If you can’t come this year, make plans to be at the 16th annual con, July 8th-12rh, 2020 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I plan to be at that con too.

I’ll post pictures and commentary on Facebook and Twitter as the week goes on. Stay tunned for those. Now it’s off to get my vendor spot set up. Since I’m so close, I traveled with books this year…
