Calendar Alert: Brattleboro Literary Festival
It's hard to pick out the top names and books for this year's Brattleboro Literary Festival because there are so many! The festival takes over the downtown of this fun and funky town for October 3-5, with readings, discussions, even this year a panel on Robert Frost.
Among the poets on hand, surely the top name for recognition is that of Robert Pinsky (photo above), whose term as US Poet Laureate was 1997-2000. For fiction, Dave is eager to hear Charles Bok. And we are both looking forward to listening to Anne Fadiman, a "must" for thoughtful interludes with "books on books."
Here's the full list of authors:
Castle Freeman, Jr.
John Burnham Schwartz
Ellen Bryant Voigt
