WHAT THE HECK IS CAMP SQUARE BOOKS?
We have four great writers - Bill Cheng,
Gail Godwin, Clyde Edgerton and Jeff Shaara - scheduled to appear at Square
Books May 21-24. We thought so many writers in such a short time would be a
great experience for readers and even better if we organized other activities

To register send an email with your name to email@example.com or register online at www.squarebooks.com.
HOW MUCH IS CAMP SQUARE BOOKS?
$260 which includes four books, 3 lunches, 2 dinners, tours and talks, reserved seating, and lots of camaraderie with authors and other book lovers.
DO I HAVE
TO ATTEND EVERYTHING?
Day passes are available if you are not able to attend all four days.
OKAY, THEN, WHAT IS REALLY GOING TO HAPPEN?
Please refer to the schedule, which is always subject to change. As you may notice, there is lots of free time. During free time, you may do whatever you like. Then you are encouraged to read, relax, walk around, and get to know your fellow campers. It’s up to you.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
You will not need to bring khaki shorts, though those are sometimes nice to have in Mississippi even in May. You do not need to bring bug repellent. On second thought, that’s actually a good idea. Mostly we’ll be inside. You do not need to bring sheets, towels, soap, etc., because we assume you are sensible enough to have made arrangements where all those things will be available. We have block rooms reserved at Hampton Inn and Holiday Inn Express.
DO I HAVE TO BE FROM OUT OF TOWN? OR CAN I COME IF I LIVE IN OXFORD?
Everyone is welcome.
WHAT’S THE DEAL? WHY IS SQUARE BOOKS DOING THIS?
Good question. We think this week offers a truly exceptional line-up of writers you’ll be interested in. And we’re always trying to find a new way to interest folks in books. But bottom line, life is short, and maybe some people are looking for something different, angling to add some serendipity to life. The way we see it, that’s part of the world of books.
