Tentative panels/signings I’ll attend at the Southern Festival of Books October 10-12

October 4, 2014 § Leave a comment

Unless something comes up, I plan on attending my fourth straight Southern Festival of Books lit festival in Nashville this upcoming weekend, October 10-12.  It’s a (mostly) free event, with only parking costs being the only guaranteed expense.  I won’t be there the full lengths each day (have a physical therapy appointment early Friday afternoon and there aren’t any compelling enough Saturday morning sessions for me to forgo sleep), but here are the sessions that I would either like to attend in full or at least catch the author in the subsequent signing in cases of schedule conflicts:

Friday:

Our Weird Little Worlds:  Short Stories (Antonya Nelson, David James Poissant) – 3-4 PM

Saturday:

Immigrant Song:  Novels of New Americans (Chantel Acevedo, Elsie Augustave, Cristina Henriquez) – 11:30 AM-1 PM

Station Eleven:  A Novel (Emily St. John Mandel) – 12-1 PM

(will likely attend the first and stay in line for both signing sessions)

What Happened There:  Veterans’ Stories in Literature (Phil Klay, Michael Pitre) – 1-2 PM (will be late for session)

Radiance of Tomorrow:  A Novel (Ishmael Beah) – 1-2 PM (likely only the signing)

Little Failure:  A Memoir (Gary Shteyngart) – 2-3 PM (late to session)

Sunday:

Brown Girl Dreaming (Jacqueline Woodson) 1-2 PM

A Path Appears:  Transforming Lives, Creating Opportunity (Nicholas D. Kristof) – 2-3 PM (likely no signing session)

The Magician’s Land (Lev Grossman) – 3-4 PM
