The festival runs from October 9th through 11 (just be sure to block off Saturday the 10th at noon for our session!) and is held in the heart of Nashville’s dynamic downtown.

We’ll be teaming up with Alex Sheshunoff and Scott Dannemiller to regale you with our tales of “Ditching the Daily: Chronicles of Simple Living, Finding Joy, and Letting Go.” 

For us, that meant selling the house and hitting the highway – it’s been over seven years now, can you believe it?

We will be expounding our adventure and the journey from empty nest to no nest at all (and the crazy antics that pop up when a decision like that is made!).

<– Here’s our book, click on the cover to learn all about it!

Alex’s book (which has a real mouthful of a title, soooo, deep breath)…

A Beginner’s Guide to Paradise: 9 Steps to Giving Up Everything So You Too Can: Move to the South Pacific, Wear a Loincloth, Read a Hundred Books, Diaper a Baby Monkey, Build a Bungalow and Maybe, Just Maybe, Fall in Love!

…is a hilarious account of, well, the subtitle pretty much tells it all. If diapering a baby monkey while wearing a loin cloth doesn’t pique your interest, something may be very, very wrong with you. 😉

Scott’s book…

The Year without a Purchase: One Family’s Quest to Stop Shopping and Start Connecting

… shares the wit and wisdom of a couple (and their kids!) who gave up buying all the stuff they really didn’t need and gained… hold on, we don’t want to spoil the fun, so we’ll let Scott fill you in on that at the Festival!

Here’s all the details you need to meet up with us at the Southern Festival of Books in Nashville!

Our session is Saturday, Oct. 10 at noon, in the Legislative Plaza, Room 12 (enter the building at the corner of 6th and Union), and we’ll be signing books at 1:30 in the Signing Colonnade
