Are you a bookworm? During the winter months I love to curl up with a good book and a cup of something hot, allowing myself to become immersed in the story the author unfolds.
Next month is the return of the Savannah Book Festival, where authors from all over the nation will be in our city for book signings, readings and Q&A sessions. So circle the dates February 15 -17 for your opportunity to treat yourself or the bookworm in your family to a special weekend in Savannah.
