'Tis the season for many things -- overindulging on poultry, overaccepting party invitations, overextending credit cards. It's also the season for a number of book fairs and festivals.
Though a number of cities hosted events earlier this month, there are still several left: Boston
have fairs coming up this weekend, National Children's Book Week
runs until the 18th and Atlanta
is currently enjoying its Jewish Book Festival. (November is traditionally Jewish Book Month
, so there are a number of Jewish book fairs being held around the country.)
And in our Internet Age it's no surprise that there's also an online festival, the Love of Reading Online Book Fair
, which begins Wednesday and runs through Friday. This second annual edition will include podcasts and author readings, discussion groups, and -- for those who are hoping eventually to sit on the author side of the table -- advice from agents and publishers.
So while you're getting ready for the holidays, take some time to feed your mind. The festivals await.
