where the writers are
Rain Taxi Twin Cities Book Festival

The TC Book Fest schedule is alive! Alive! Cue: spooky music.
Looming large on the horizon (next Saturday - 10/13), it draws ever nearer. The Fest is a good time - lots of authors, presses and books, plus author panels. I'll be on MN Queer - The State of LGBT Literature panel at 11:30. Panelists include Rachel Gold, Raymond Luczak, and John Medeiros, plus a moderator whose name I haven't committed to memory yet. Other events of note include presentations by Kate Bornstein and Ann and Jeff VanderMeer and a reading by local author William Alexander, plus bunches of other cool things. And it's free. http://www.raintaxi.com/bookfest/2012schedule.php
