Don’t Miss the First Connecticut Book Festival! Monday, March 21, 2011

Novelist Alice Mattison, gardening expert Tovah Martin, and science fiction writer Ronald L. Mallett are among more than 30 Connecticut authors scheduled to join Honorary Chair Wally Lamb at the first-ever Connecticut Book Festival on May 21 and 22, 2011, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., on the University of Connecticut Greater Hartford campus.

The free, family-friendly Festival is open to the public, to promote and celebrate books, reading, and our state’s bountiful and diverse literary community. Authors of fiction and nonfiction for adults and teens will offer presentations, panel discussions, readings, and book signings.

There will be performances by the New Haven Symphony Orchestra, the dance troupe dancEnlight, and State Troubadour Chuck E. Costa, as well as roving characters from the Mystic Paper Beasts Theatre Company. The Children’s Activities Tent, sponsored by Connecticut Humanities Council and the Northeast Children’s Literature Collection, will offer a chalk drawing competition—led by Hartford Art School Professor Bill Thomson, author of Chalk—among its attractions.
