Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Authors I’d Love to Invite Over for Thanksgiving Dinner


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is a Thanksgiving freebie so I decided to go with 10 Authors I’d Love to Invite Over for Thanksgiving Dinner.  I just think this would be such an entertaining group to hang out with and eat, drink, and be merry.  Not only would it be fun to chat with each of them while we chow down on our Thanksgiving feast, but it would also be a hoot to watch them interact with each other.  Unless my usual holiday meal, I don’t think any topics of conversation would be off limits.  This is also a good mix of my favorites, as well as some of my mom and sister’s favorites so I think it would be a fabulous evening for us all.

    Such an interesting topic. I’d be too intimidated to invite my favourite authors for dinner, but if I did, Stephen King and Margaret Atwood would definitely be on my list. Also, can I raise the dead? Because my Thanksgiving dinner wouldn’t be complete without Ray Bradbury.

    What a fun idea! I’d *love* to see all of these people interact. I can’t imagine how entertaining those conversations would be with such an intelligent and exciting group of people. I feel like Michelle Obama would be a particular delight, and I’d love to hear from Margaret Atwood.

    Great list, Suzanne! I’d be in on many of these authors for dinner! I’d add Alice Munro, Elizabeth Berg and Jane Austen. Ooooh, I would love so much to have a glass of wine with Michelle Obama and JK Rowling. 😛

    I’d invited much of the same. Or, creators in general just to pick their minds a bit and figure out their process, what makes them tick, etc etc. And then blow off steam a little bit and just have a good, fun night. Your list is great! And I really love your topic of choice, it’s fun to think about!

      I think the more bookish peeps, the merrier! And I’d probably be the same way. Watching and listening and too awestruck to say much, lol.

    Oh my gosh, you’re right- just t osit back and see THAT conversation play out. Would be amazing??!? Rowling and Martin together, plus King… and Obama? And Clinton? Wow.

    Great post! I think my dad would invite George R.R. Martin over just to ask him when the next Game of Thrones book comes out. XD Happy Thanksgiving!

    Oh, I like what you did with this week’s TTT, Suzanne! I think every blogger would probably invade your dinner as well for company like this!
