I'm all kinds of jealous of everyone that will be at BEA this week. I'll be right here, blogging away like normal. But don't be sad if you're home like me! Just come out to Utah next Saturday, June 4, for the Utah Festival of Books.
There won't be ARC's, or free books, or swag. But there will be authors and illustrators and plays and dance groups and book binding and The Princess Bride. I'm not kidding; I can't make that random assortment up. Also, it's being hosted at BYU, which was my Hogwarts for the six years I was a student there. (don't worry - I got two degrees).
Oh yeah, and it's free.
In case you need a visual, here is where to find Utah. That red splotch is close to the BYU/Provo area.
All joking aside, I think the Book Festival will be a lot of fun. I wish I could go (it's 10 minutes from my house!) but I have something that day. So stop over there and say hi to Kiersten White or Ally Condie or James Dashner for me.
