I don’t know if I have many blog readers in the New Jersey area, but I’ll be at the Collingswood Book Festival tomorrow, October 2 from 10am to 4pm. This will be the 8th annual book event at Collingswood – and my first time in the town.

Street fairs are a lot of fun – I did the Mushroom Festival in Kennett Square a couple years back – and this one should be even more interesting because it is entirely centered around books. Six city blocks of authors and their books!

Tony Abbot will be there (TONY ABBOT!!) as well as Kieran Scott, Sara Shepard, and Dan Gutman! I’ll be there, too, in booth 34. (Don’t know where that is yet.)

The event takes place rain or shine. In the event of rain, it will be moved to the Collingswood High School. This is good news, because doing the Mushroom Festival in Hurricane Hannah was no fun at all and not very good for the books … And considering the weather on the east coast yesterday, I’m glad there’s a back-up plan for Saturday!

If I get any good pictures of anybody important, I’ll probably post them practically live on Facebook and Twitter. Otherwise, I’ll report back to you next week.

Wish me luck! (I will, of course, wear my We Hear the Dead charm bracelet, thank you, Aine!)
