If you’re looking for something to do, tomorrow and you enjoy going into Boston, you should check out the Boston Book Festival. It is a mostly free event in downtown Boston for anyone who loves to read. You can see real live authors talk about their books and visit the literary street fair right in Copley Square. I will definitely be there, along with Kendall Boninti, my counterpart at Waltham High School. Here are some (free) panel discussions that you might enjoy:
- Steampunk! 11 am, Boston Public Library
Featuring Kelly Link and Gavin Grant, editors of Steampunk! An Anthology of Fantastically Rich and Strange Stories, Holly Black, author of The Spiderwick Chronicles and Tithe; and Allison DeBlasio, creator of Steampunk.
- YA Fiction: On the Edge 12:30 pm, Old South Church
Featuring Danica Novgorodoff, author of Refresh, Refresh, Ellen Levine, author of In Trouble, and Daniel Nayeri, who wrote entire books on his I-phone!
- Page and Stage: Teen Spoken Word 4:00 pm Old South Church
Featuring teens telling original stories. If you go, you might even get to go on stage yourself!
