EVENTS GALORE!! Feel the Literary Love!

Hi all!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! 

Gotta say the day is going differently than I planned, but I’m going with the flow and making time to catch up on some things…namely adding a post to this blog!

So, there are loads of GREAT events happening in this fine city of ours. It’s been awhile since I’ve done a post that offers a list of some of the events that are happening. I’ve done my best to find the literary-esque events to share with you. Some of them I’m in involved in (#marketing!) and some of them I’m not. Some of them are on the same day and so we’ll be tasked with having to choose one over another! (Don’t ever let anyone tell you that there’s nothing going on in Windsor. Eff that. There’s soooo much!)
