Sat October 15 at 10:00 AM, Trinity Church, Old South Church, Boston Public Library, Back Bay Event Center, and other locations
Copley Square, 47 Huntington Ave, Boston, MA, USA (Map & Directions)
The Boston Book Festival is back for its third year. In one day, 33 different lectures about books: reading 'em, writing 'em, fiction, sports, crime, graphic novels, and on and on.
At various locations around Copley Square, from 10am 'til 5pm. There are also exhibitors' tents on the square. I've been to the last two, and got to see some interesting talks and liked seeing all the bibliophiles milling about.

It's supposed to be a clear day tomorrow, too. Be warned that venues often fill up early. Bring a book to read while waiting!

While it'd be fun to meet up with MeFites for lunch or at some of the talks, it's probably too close to the event to set it up. But I thought I'd post this event anyways, as it seems like the kind of thing MeFi has alerted me to in the past.

The talks I'm planning to go to are:

11am - Noon: Crime Fiction, at the Old South Church

2:30 - 3:30 - True Story, at the Back Bay Event Center

4:30 - 5:45 - Far Out Fiction, at Trinity Church. Kate Beaton will be there.

I'm going to a couple of the freebie Grub Street writing workshops during the day, so I'm not sure how much those overlap with the talks, but I'll be keeping an eye out for mefites.

Hey, I'll be there! If you see a guy wearing a typography hoodie, that's me!

I just discovered Hark! A Vagrant a few weeks ago, and am pacing myself through the series, and got a couple of Kate Beaton's books out of my local liberry. Say thank you to her for me!

We applauded her strongly. There was even a smattering of applause when she projected certain Vagrant strips. People sure do love Tesla.
