Tomorrow evening I’ll be speaking to children (and other humans) as a part of the Lewisburg Literary Festival!
I’ll be at the library on Friday, August 7, and will start at 5:30pm. I hope you can make it!
I’m really thrilled to be involved and was so honored to be included.
I plan to talk about what makes a great character and to challenge the kids (and all of us) to think through our own lives as characters in a big story. In the stories we love, what do the great characters do?
They do not eat dirt, for instance? Or do they?
Nope. They don’t. I’ll also be around on Saturday at the Literary Town Square (The Greenbrier County Convention and Visitors Bureau). Please stop by and say hi and/or buy a hundred books. I will also be handing out high-fives (free).
There are lots of fascinating things happening over the two days of the festival, including my friend Eric Fritzius’ (author of A Consternation of Monsters) duo performance of his story, “To A Flame.” That’ll be at sundown. Maybe that one isn’t for the kiddies, but there’s plenty for kids to do and Lewisburg is just a great town.
I hope to see you there.
