Book Signing: Dumplin' Launch Party and Giveaway

(Not my photo)

I love going to book signings, and even though I don't completely interact with anyone there I still find it fun. On the 14th of this month I was able to go to the Launch Party for Julie Murphy's new book Dumplin', and it was glamorous. :) They had a few different things to do. You could take your picture with a cutout of Willowdean. (I didn't.) You were able to make a sash like beauty contestants wear, and then there were cupcakes and a table full of red delicious candy. (My mom made me make her a bag of candy.) All of this was happening before the author sat down to take a few question because they had forgotten (I guess) to make time for Q&A. I'm really bad with remembering what questions were asked and the answers, but it was fab. :) Julie seems like a very down to earth, sweet, and fun person. She was walking  around talking to people.

In the pictures below you will see a guy dressed up that is Julie's Husband who came out wearing the dress singing Jolene by Dolly Parton. It was awesome..

Keep scrolling to see some fun pictures of the night, and what I got while I was there. Then a giveaway at the end.
