Boston Book Fest is this weekend. I’ve gone for the past four years and loved it every time. There are amazing author panels, kids activities, food trucks, and a crowd of people who love books. After the presentations, authors are usually available to sign their books. When the crowds get to be too much, I find a seat in the Boston Public Library’s courtyard (I hope it will be warm enough tomorrow) with a snack and a notebook, and write down all the inspiring thoughts that are buzzing around my head.
Because of my work as a tutor – and because I love children’s literature best of all – I tend to focus on the kids’ and teens’ activities. This year, Louis Sachar and Libba Bray are presenting at the same time and I can’t figure out which presentation to go to. Help!
