A very busy weekend full of Mockingbird madness!

Dear friends, Is it officially fall yet? The trees are beginning to turn colors in Salem. I love it here this time of season. I have a mighty busy weekend ahead of me which I'd like to share with you, since all of things are carrying fair amounts of fabulousness.

The Salem Literary Festival will be taking place this weekend, September 17-19, 2010 in Salem, MA. On Friday night (tonight) at 7pm I'll be hosting the Opening Night Celebration with Lily King. I'll announce the winner of the First Salem Literary Festival Writing Contest, which you don't want to miss. On Sunday the 20th from 10am-6pm in Derby Square there will be  Mockingbird Marathon, which I'll be hosting. Grab a coffee at Jaho and come listen! Or participate! I have some friends of mine coming from Manhattan to join me. I'd love to have you there.

On Saturday, September 18th, the Boston Public Library will be doing an Author Talk and Movie: 50th Anniversary of To Kill a Mockingbird. Katherine Hall Page and I will be chatting about how the book impacted our lives (and writing lives). After we talk there will be a brief break and signing, and then the movie will be shown. The whole thing begins at 1pm and goes on until 4:30pm. Should be a blast!
