Empire State Book Festival: April 9-10

It’s coming to Albany and — who knows! — maybe it will be fun. I know I’ll be there, signing books (1:45 – 2:45) and participating in  a Panel Discussion, “Get Real,” along with Jan Cheripko, Daphne Grab, Todd Strasser, and Terry Trueman. It’s scheduled for 12:45 – 1:30. According to the Program Guide, this is what we’ll be talking about:

If you are a fan of teen fiction or want to write for young adults, especially books that deal with real issues faced by today’s youth, then you’ll want to listen to our stellar panel of renowned writers of realistic young adult fiction speak about the genre and why they write for this age group. You will be able to hear several approaches to the creation of a YA novel.

The whole enchilada is FREE and anybody can get past the burly bouncers at the front door. Just smile and say you love books.

Seriously, there’s a bazillion programs, exhibitions, children’s activities, and authors up the wazoo (children’s, adult, and otherwise!), including: Joseph Bruchac, Zetta Elliott, Jessica Loy, Eric Luper, Jeff Mack, Gregory Maguire, Coleen Murtagh Paratore, Hudson Talbott, and a long, long, long list more.
