What you don't see on the news is we evacuate A LOT

Evacuate?  hehehe, nawwww that's what my stockpile of supplies and grill is for (though the dog wouldn't even eat the bacon I made on it two seasons ago, but that's besides the point)

So I'm sitting here looking at the posts and I started thinking Orlando is kind of a half way point in Florida, if you can't afford a lot of stops and you do choose Florida I am pretty sure there are a lot of us who'd be willing to take that drive from whichever end of the state we're on to see ya  Grin

I'm casting another vote for Chicago - home of many incredibly crafty people and places.

Here is a list of the LYSs - I know that Arcadia Knitting is actively looking to bring people in for book signings.

There's always The Book Cellar, which is one of my favorite places and is always hosting book signings.  Plus, they serve wine there.  Books + booze + authors = awesome.

Columbus, Ohio.

Columbus:

Franklin Park Conservatory ~ my favorite place.  http://www.fpconservatory.org/

The Book Loft ~ 32 rooms of books Wink  Not just a book store, it kind of reminds me of the movie "You've Got Mail."  You know, with the bookstore, "Just Around the Corner" vs. "Fox Books."  Except The Book Loft is Just Around the Corner, times 32 Wink  It's in German Village & it's quite unique!  Oh, and there's a resident cat, LOL.  http://www.bookloft.com/bltour.htm

Well, the Ohio Craft Museum, of course!! http://www.ohiocraft.org/museum.html

The Craftin Outlaw show did quite well in Columbus.  It was held at Skully's which would be good because it's in the Short North which is our main crafty/artsy/indie area.  If they would do it, that would be excellent.

It may also be possible to have it in the Ohio Union at Ohio State University...or someplace else on campus.

Victoria's Midnight Cafe would also be another good option.

I must add a very HUGE thumbs up for Chicago &/or St. Louis.  Chicago would probably have a larger selection of venues (and is an awesome city) but make sure to get there before winter hits!  ^_^  St. Louis, on the other hand, is my home. *L*  So, I am slightly partial.  Sadly, I cannot think of many venues except the usual Barnes and Noble, or Left Bank Books.   Remember, St. Louis is the most central decently- sized city in the US!   

But I think I would drive the 5 hours to see Leah and her new book.  I mean, heck, it IS Chicago.  I totally <3 that city!   Cheesy

Columbia, MO!

9th Street Bookstore
(573) 443-2665
111 S 9th St.
Columbia, MO 65201

It's a college town with a surprising number of crafty girls and guys who would appreciate the opportunity. Plus, you'd most likely get a great newspaper review out of it. (The Journalism school here is, apparently, amazing.)

Another vote for Los Angeles here!!  Insomnia Cafe is great because I can walk there.  Wink  And Black Sheep Knittery is indeed very hip, especially compared to the other LYS's (most of which skew a little older and snootier) -- they'd be a good match, too.  Or you could just come to the West Hollywood SnB, which meets in the Farmer's Market -- there's TONS of space!

Minneapolis!  I vote again for Crafty Planet, they have their class space that isn't bad at all.  www.craftyplanet.co m.  They are more than knitting, they have all kinds of crafty goodness, and sell stuff from local people (big bonus in my book)

The chains kinda killed the local bookstore scene, otherwise I would have suggested one of those.

I own Tesserae Studio Gallery, a make your own mosaic shop and craft boutique in Philadelphia, PA.  I would be happy to host your event.  My storefront is a wee bit small but we have had art openings that have been attended by 100 plus people over the course of a few hours.  We do monthly art shows and could plan some sort of exhibit of indie crafters to be held in conjunction with your book signing.

Just say the word.
