Montclair Literary Festival Saturday March 23rd 2019

It’s almost time for the Montclair Literary Festival! The big day is Saturday March 23rd, and the guest of honor is Joyce Carol Oates. She will be interviewed by Jonathan Santlofer, author of A Widower’s Notebook, about her long illustrious career and her newest novel, the dystopian YA thriller, Hazards of Time Travel. The book is a gut punch, with nostalgia weaponized for reeducation, and a great read. Brad Parks will also be there, author of the Carter Ross crime novels, in discussion with Wallace Stroby. And I’ll be moderating a panel of New Jersey writers! At 4:00 PM in the Crescent Room of the Congregational Church (next door to the Montclair Public Library), join me and authors Dave White, Jen Conley, Wallace Stroby, and Marina Antropow Cramer–also a bookseller for over 20 years–as we discuss what makes the state beneficial and challenging to writers, and to write about.

If you’re on the fence about the after party, I will vouch. Great food and drink, and you get to rub elbows with every writer at the festival, so you can gush about how much you love their books while they try to wash down falafel balls and sliders with as much free wine or soda as they can guzzle. (This is the writer’s natural habitat). Hope to see you there!
