Save the date: the Boston Book Festival is set for Saturday, October 15 this year on Copley Plaza.  It’s a lot of fun, and you may get to meet some of your literary heroes 🙂

I have gone to the BBF the past two years and loved it; it makes me regret not becoming a writer. Last year I volunteered at the event, helping set up their public wifi; they’ve also held a tent for OLPC for the past two years, where we’ve recruited a few great collaborators.  It is a literary bazaar, warmly supportive of local authors and businesses — with hints of festival, conference, and educational showcase.   All of the events are free, but it was hard to get into the most popular author presentations — seating was packed, and nobody wanted to leave when sessions ended!

The festival is supported by the Boston community, and this year they’re hosting a fundraising dinner for the festival, as part of a fundraiser for the event. (It’s nice to see Cambridge helping out its big brother.)  They are also reserving seats at the big events for donors, with VIP passes.  Please consider volunteering for the event or coming to this dinner to support and learn about it.
