Northwest Bookfest this weekend

If you are in the Seattle area, there is a great FREE book event this weekend across the pond in Kirkland. A ton of authors from a multitude of genres will be on panels and signing books. There will also be a performance by Caspar Babypants (aka the lead singer from the Presidents of the United States of America) and storytime for the younger set. Here are some of the events I plan to attend. Please say hi!


11am: Imaginary Worlds–Writing for Teens with Heather Davis, Kevin Emerson, Caridad Ferrer and Liz Gallagher

Noon: Steampunk and Urban Fantasy with Mark Henry, Kat Richardson, Cherie Priest and Mark Teppo

1pm: Queens of Romance Tea with Elizabeth Boyle, Lisa Kleypas, Susan Mallery and Susan Wiggs
Contact Parkplace Books for tickets, 425.828.6546 or


1-4pm: Smart Chicks Kick-It Tour Young Adult Authors with Musical Guests: Woodland and Adam Hurst Kelley Armstrong, Jennifer Lynn Barnes, Rachel Caine, Melissa de la Cruz, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Sophie Jordan, Melissa Marr, Richelle Mead, Jeri Smith-Ready, Margaret Stohl, Rachel Vincent and Sara Zarr

I’d really like to attend the graphic novel and children’s book illustration workshops too, but I won’t be able to fit it in.
