Boston Book Festival 2012 promotes literature and ideas.
Saturday, October 27 10am-5pm
47 Huntington Avenue
Boston, MA 02116
Nonfiction, fiction, poetry, books for kids, essay, short stories, participatory/seminars… all you can wish for a book festival will be this autumn at the Boston Book Festival. Don’t miss it! The mission of the Boston Book Festival is to celebrate the power of words, to promote a culture of literature and ideas and to enhance the vibrancy of the fantastic city of Boston. Furthermore, two years ago, in 2012, they launched ‘One City One Story’ distributing a short story available to all free of charge, to spread the pleasure of reading among people of Boston and then, feed-backing and sharing reading experiences. The choice for this year is “The Lobster Mafia Story” by Anna Solomon, originally published by The Georgia Review and Pushcart Prize 2011.

Furthermore and among other publishing houses, Black Lawrence Press (BLP) will have a table at the Boston Book Festival 2012 for the first time. They invite you to check out the latest releases in poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and translation, and to meet some of their wonderful authors:
Helen Marie Casey, author of the biography My Dear Girl: The Art of Florence Hosmer will sign copies of her book at the BLP table at noon. Florence Hosmer is a Massachusetts native, and this book is a gorgeous introduction to her oft-overlooked work.
