The Christmas festivities are over, so it's time to look forward to other kinds of fun gatherings.
On March 31 The Second Annual Greater Syracuse Teen Book Festival will be held at the Fairport High School in Fairport, New York. Among the featured authors: Cecil Castellucci, Tamora Pierce, and Nancy Werlin.
On March 29 through 32 Giving Voice A Symposium on the Art of Memoir will be held at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut. I might try to get to part of this one. In November while I was working on essays I angst over whether or not I should sign up for the Wesleyan Writers Conference in June. This memoir thing is much shorter and better suited to my attention span.
