FWR will have a table at the 2009 Ann Arbor Book Festival (in the Writing Conference), which begins this Friday! Michigan-based writers, stop by and say hello to Jeremy, and also check out the Emerging Writers Network and Hobart. In addition to a book fair, this festival will feature an array of exciting panels (the one on the Future of the Book sounds especially interesting!), readings from authors like Colson Whitehead (Sag Harbor) and Sung J. Woo (Everything Asian), and other events, such as this exploration of how a play comes to life “from page to stage,” a breakfast with several guest authors on Saturday, or a tour of homes where famous authors (like W. H. Auden, Robert Frost, and Arthur Miller) once lived.
Peruse the full schedule here. The only portion of the festival requiring registration is the Writer’s Conference.
The Ann Arbor Book Festival is also sponsoring a short story contest, open between May 1, 2009 and August 1, 2009.
