Fall for the Book: September 26-30

Yes, after August will come September, which means fall is almost here, which means it’s almost time for the 14th annual Fall for the Book festival at George Mason University (and nearby sites).

Set for September 26 through September 30, the festival features a breathtaking list of participating authors, including:

Michael Chabon
Neil Gaimon
Laura Lippman
Rita Dove
Pam Houston
Alice Walker
Barbara Ehrenreich
Karen Russell

--and, truly, at least three dozen more!  Read the entire list here.

Davy Rothbart, editor of Found magazine, is one of Steve’s favorites, so I’m guessing we may find our way to this event:
Wednesday, September 26
8:00 PM - 9:30 PM
Johnson Center Bistro George Mason University, 4400 University Drive, Fairfax, VA
Road warriors Davy and Peter Rothbart are hopping back in the tour van, FOUND treasures in tow, for an epic cross-country romp, celebrating the release of Davy’s book of personal essays, My Heart is an Idiot, Peter’s new album, and a brand-new issue of FOUND.

Here is the full calendar of events, with dates, times, and locations.  All events are free and open to the public.  For more information:  www.fallforthebook.org
