Of Book Fests and Libraries

Next week I will be heading to Ann Arbor, Michigan, to take part in the Kerrytown Book Fest.

On Sunday, September 10 at 11:00 a.m. I’ll be in the Main Tent with Laurel Huber Davis, Greer Macallister, and Pamela Toler talking about “Women in History” in fiction and nonfiction. Barbara Mhangami-Ruwende will moderate.

It’s certainly not the first time I’ll be talking about women in history, but it will be my first appearance at a book festival. I’m sure I’ll be meeting all sorts of interesting readers and writers. (Maybe I’ll even see more of Ann Arbor than I did the last time I was there, when all my views were of the inside of an archives!)

And on Monday, November 20, the Paging Through the Past book club at the Portage County (Wisconsin) Public Library will be discussing Angels of the Underground. I’ll be on hand for that, too. For additional details, click here.

I’m glad to have these two events on my calendar. I love talking to people about what they’re reading–whether it’s my book or someone else’s. Plus it helps keep my mind off the whole book proposal submission process, which is where I’m at right now.
