Sookie Stackhouse fans swarm Charlaine Harris in Mississippi

I don't know about you, but I'm loving this season of HBO's True Blood. If you're missing it, I suggest you catch up before a spoiler bites you on the neck.
This week Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse books that inspired the series, dropped by the Hernando Public Library in Hernando, Miss., to greet fans. Pop reader David B. (aka knowjack) attended the event.
"We were thrilled to have her come back to our area to visit, and apparently so were a lot of other people -- we had about 600 people to show up!" he says. (David works at the nearby First Regional Library.)
He adds, "She was very entertaining and stayed until the very last person got an autographed book. It was very cool to hear her talk about her writing process, HBO and the relationships she has made with the True Blood cast. She told the audience that Kristin Bauer (Pam) just got married to a 'gorgeous' guy, Rutina Wesley (Tara) is one of the nicest people she's ever met, Deborah Ann Woll (Jessica) gets even more beautiful up close and a lot of other juicy tidbits.
