A good friend has been talking excitedly about Lizzie Garrett Mettler’s blog Tomboy Style for a few years now. So when the blog was turned into a book and the author scheduled an Atlanta appearance, we had to go. Bookstores maybe disappearing, but the thrill of meeting your favorite author face to face, of getting a book personally autographed and being able to ask that one question you’ve been wondering about … those things are here to stay. Thankfully, Atlanta still has places that make great stops on an author’s tour — local shops, schools and libraries, the Georgia Center for the Book and the author-drenched Decatur Book Festival.
