Soooo…..I spent Saturday at the OutWrite LGBT Book Festival at the DC Center in Washington, DC. That was great fun!!! It’s going on today so if you have a chance stop by, check out all the books and authors who are happy to talk to you after the panels or at the tables set up for them. This is a wonderful festival that happens every year. Just look at the various panels, Author Readings and Workshops available to attend! This is the complete schedule for the weekend! Today there is the Flicker and Spark Poetry Brunch going on. It started on Friday with a keynote speech by Martin Duberman and continued with so much more, including a panel with David Pratt who wrote Looking After Joey!
So a shout out to David Pratt and Rafe Haze, Wilde City Press authors! Augusta Li, Rowen Mcallister, Pearl Love, Marguerite Labbe, authors at Dreamspinner Press, Ellis Carrington, Michael Murphy too! Shout out to Madeleine Ribbon, Andrew Q. Gordon of Wayward Ink Press and authors of many wonderful books. If you are in the area next year, make sure to add it to your calendar of things to do!
If you live nearby, put this on your list of things to do each year. It’s definitely on mine!
