Newburyport Literary Festival!

If you're in the Boston area I want to encourage you come out to this weekend's Newburyport Literary Festival! It promises to be a great weekend of readings, talks and more with many of the area's literary stars. Some participating authors include:
  • Brunonia Barry (The Map of True Places, The Lace Reader),
  • Michelle Hoover (The Quickening),
  • Matthew Pearl (The Last Dickens),
  • Paul Harding (Tinkers),
  • and more!
There will also be a panel on book blogging, which I'm honored to be a part of, along with great area bloggers Dawn of She is Too Fond of Books, Kevin of Boston Book Bums and Sarah of Archimedes Forgets. We'll all also be recommending (and selling) some of our favorite books. We each got to pick two titles to have on sale at our talk; mine are going to be Jeanine Cummins' The Outside Boy and Herve Le Tellier's Enough About Love; if you want to see Dawn's or Kevin's or Sarah's, you'll have to come to our panel!

In addition, there are events on children's books, poetry, local history and more. If you can't make it, I'll have a post next week with pictures and more. It's going to be such a great weekend!
