Come join me in Newburyport, MA, tomorrow, April 23, for the Newburyport Literary Festival! I'll be on a panel called "A Sense of Place" with Aine Greaney, moderated by Elizabeth Barrett, bright and early at 9 AM. There are multiple venues downtown, with many presenters. You can view the schedule here. It's bound to be a blast. It's an all-day event, so come for the whole day, or stop by for part of it. Although the schedule doesn't specify, I've heard directly from the folks at the festival that each event should be expected to run for about an hour in length.
Hope to see you all there! There just isn't anything quite like the North Shore in spring.
