We are very excited about the Book Festival line up this year.
If you have a younger reader in your life, they should enjoy meeting George O’Connor author of The Olympians series of graphic novels and illustrator of many many children’s books at 10:30. The Olympians series is for the 9-14 reader group (although I find them quite enticing).
We have an exceptional workshop on poetry writing with Jennifer Barber who is both a teacher and the author of two books of poetry – Given Away and Rigging the Wind – you need to register for this (978-1010 x 103) but it’s free and will run from 11:30 to about 1:25. (bring your brown bag lunch)
At 1:30 you can step into the Roosevelt Room for a panel discussion called The Short Form with Ann Hood, Jennifer Haigh, C. B. Anderson and moderator Kate Burak.
At 3:30 the key note will be delivered by Paul Harding, Pulitzer winning author of Tinkers and Enon. Rob Mitchell, founder of the Concord Festival of Authors, will act as moderator for this talk.
Books will be available for purchase courtesy of Porter Square Books and refreshments (also free) will be available. Please Join us.
