A small group of authors and readers got together in Savannah for the Literary Love conference. Everyone was required to wear masks, the number of people in any given room was controlled, temperatures were taken, use of hand sanitizers caused our hands to chap they were used so much, and we observed social distancing as much as we could.
Since we were responsible, no one got sick. It’s possible to have a great time and still keep each other safe. WEAR YOUR MASKS! I spent the conference taking pictures of masks people wore. Here are my favorite.
Masks can support charities. This one raised money for Muscular Sclerosis. I immediately recognized Michelle behind the mask.
You’ve got to respect people who are handy with a needle and thread. Here we have a mask with a matching headband. Not only that, she was able to maintain her 1950s hairstyle. The author writes Dieselpunk and was able to maintain her brand, even during a pandemic.
Some masks were just fun! This one had a bunch of sayings on it. I particularly liked, ‘maybe swearing will help.’ You’ve also got to love the rainbow glasses she wore.
This mask was stunning. The reader grew up in Hawaii and brought back the islands with her. The variety and creativity of masks was incredible.
Wear a mask that reflects your personality. Do it to save a life, maybe someone you love. The spread of Covid19 has decreased where mask wearing has been mandated. i find wearing a mask is second nature.
