The annual Northern Arizona Book Festival will be this upcoming weekend (May 18). It will feature readings by authors Pam Houston (Cowboys Are My Weakness), Betty Webb (author of the Lena Jones mystery series), and Sean Carswell (America’s greatest living novelist*). There will also be music, panel discussions, and (hopefully) assorted madness. It’ll be held at the Coconino Center for the Arts.
If you’re in Flagstaff this coming weekend, please stop by. If you’re not planning on being in Flagstaff, change your plans. Get there. It’s going to be awesome. Way cooler than watching someone graduate from college**.
* If not America’s greatest living novelist, I am at least the greatest living novelist performing at the NABF between 1:00 and 1:45.
** Apologies to my students and colleagues who’ll be attending to CSUCI graduation ceremonies that day.
