The Making of Outlander Book Signing Event – Scottsdale, Arizona

The Poisoned Pen bookstore in Scottsdale, Arizona hosted a book signing event at the Hilton Scottsdale Resort and Villas.  We didn’t want to miss an opportunity to meet Tara and see Diana again, so we loaded up the car and headed out towards Arizona.

In today’s blog, we will share our adventure meeting Tara Bennett. Here is what we will cover:

  • Our road trip from San diego to Arizona
