The Salem Literary Festival is This Weekend!

And I hope you'll be there!

Now obviously I want you to come to the totally awesome blogging panel on which I'll be speaking along with three other great local bloggers- Kevin of Boston Book Bums, Dawn of She is Too Fond of Books and Sarah of Archimedes Forgets. Obviously. But you should check out the entire schedule of events- there's just so much going on! Readings, talks about writing, about books- you name it.

To see a schedule of events, click here. It's recommended that you use the EventBrite link to reserve spaces to individual events, to ensure you'll get a seat.

There's a fancy dinner Saturday night with authors including Erin Morgenstern, whose new book The Night Circus is making a big splash. There's an auction for the opportunity for an agent to review your manuscript. There's a Scrabble tournament. There's so much going on.

I really hope you can make it, and that you have a great time! The Festival runs Saturday and Sunday, September 24-25, in Salem, Massachusetts. EventBrite and the Festival website have specifics on times and venues. Hope to see you there!
