It’s Raining Books! 2011 Northwest Bookfest

It looks like it’s going to rain actual water too this coming weekend, but what better weather to get acquainted with a new-to-you author and curl up with one of their books!?  Or attend a workshop and start working on your own debut novel?

2011 Northwest Bookfest

Dotted around Peter Kirk Park and including the Kirkland Library as one of the venues, there are activities at the 2011 Northwest Bookfest for the young and young-at-heart in every genre.  Exhibitors, author panelists, and workshops will abound. Some of my favorite topics include:

  • Did It Really Happen or Did You Make It Up? Historical Novels (Saturday 10 a.m.)
  • Original Music Inspired by The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton (Saturday 1p.m.)
  • Screenwriter Survival 101–The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (Sunday 10 a.m.)

And if this wasn’t enough, perennially favorite library program Caspar Babypants will be performing at 10 a.m. on Saturday.  Plan your weekend with the complete author, workshop, and event line-up!  The event is free, but donations are accepted; suggested $5 per person or $10 per family.
