The Brattleboro Literary Festival–named one of the top five upcoming writing and literary festivals by the Writer’s Circle–starts this coming Thursday–October 3rd in New England-y Brattleboro, Vermont. And…

I will be on a panel to celebrate building communities of readers and writers!

Jodi Paloni will be the moderator. The other panelists will be David Abrams and Erika Anderson. Our panel will be Sunday afternoon at 12:15 until 1:30. Come ask us a question! Spend the day. Or better yet, spend the weekend. What could be better–Vermont, October, reading and writing.

Several of the writers who will be there have been featured in the How We Spend Our Days series here:  Christopher Castellani, Pam HoustonChristine Schutt, and Alexis Smith.

One event I’m particularly looking forward to is the Literary Death Match–with readers Pam Houston, Chris Castellani, Roxana Robinson, and Rigoberto Gonzales–judged by Tom Bodett, among others.

Fall is my favorite season; New England, my favorite area of the country–I have a special category just for leaves over on the right sideboard.

Join us!
