As we close 2016, we decided to take a moment to appreciate the positive experiences this year has offered us. As three professional women, with families, we balance work, busy schedules, and taking time to go out and experience all that the Outlander fandom has to offer. We have loved our time going to Outlander events, as there is no better way to get through Droughtlander than being with others who have your same addiction. Sharing our adventures in all things Outlander was our motivation to start this blog. We have enjoyed having a place to talk about our love for the books, author, show, cast, and crew. As we begin the festivities to celebrate the new year, we wanted to take time to reflect on our favorite memories of 2016. Come take a look at some of our favorite moments!
Going behind the scenes of our favorite television show, Outlander, would be a dream come true! The likelihood of that, however, is slim to none. Thank goodness author Tara Bennett wrote the companion book, The Making of Outlander!
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
- The Making of the Outlander book signing and meeting Tara Bennett
- Some quotes from Diana Gabaldon and new books coming out
- Our review of the hotel accommodations
- The gem we found on our drive home
