Last week, we blogged about the opening of Fantasy Faire - and many of you have probably already dropped by to see what is available from the hundreds of Merchants who have items that will go to the benefit of the American Cancer Society.
Did you also know that there’s a big Literary Festival that is part of the faire this year - with story-telling, dramatic performances, workshops, and author meet and greets? Find out more about all the events happening on the Fantasy Faire website.
This year’s Literary Festival guest of honor is Elizabeth Bear. Elizabeth will be appearing in Second Life for an interview on Tuesday April 23rd , which appropriately is on #WorldBookDay. There’s also a separate reading on Friday April 26. Both events will take place from 2-3pm SLT (Pacific). Here is a snippet taken from her author bio on her website:
[Elizabeth Bear] is the Hugo, Sturgeon, Locus, and Campbell Award winning author of dozens of novels; over a hundred short stories; and a number of essays, nonfiction, and opinion pieces for markets as diverse as Popular Mechanics and The Washington Post.
She lives in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts with her spouse, writer Scott Lynch.
The full schedule for the Literary Festival can be seen on the Fantasy Faire website, but if you want to attend the Elizabeth Bear events, follow the Destination Guide link below.
