Photo Gallery | International Bestselling Author Packs the Fox House
International bestselling author Louise Penny first announced that her latest novel, The Beautiful Mystery, would be #2 on this week's New York Times Bestsellers List while attending a book signing event at Woodstock's FoxTale Book Shoppe. Woodstock was Penny's only stop in the entire southeast United States. Penny, who lives in Canada, heard all the way up there that the ladies of FoxTale Book Shoppe know how to throw an event and she said that FoxTale was a "must" on her book tour. When Penny arrived for the event on September 5th, it was to a standing room only crowd with guests coming as far as Charlotte, NC to meet Penny.
The author welcomed guests and took questions from the engaged audience. She read briefly from The Beautiful Mystery and then personally met each and every guest as if they were the only person in the entire room. One person brought a framed picture for Penny as a gift while most brought with them a story of how much Penny's novels have meant to them. The author posed, hugged, listened, autographed books and smiled truly enjoying each of her fans.
FoxTale has gained a reputation for the place to have a book event among publishers. FoxTale Book Shoppe is Woodstock's only independent book shoppe and is located at 105 East Main Street in Downtown Woodstock, adjacent to City Park.
