Live Near Indianapolis? Come Meet Me on Sept. 18 or Nov. 17

There is an Author Appreciation Fair at the Greenfield branch of the Hancock County Library in suburban Indianapolis (east side of town, I think).

NOV. 17, 2010:
ANN KATZ FESTIVAL OF BOOKS (INDIANAPOLIS)


This Indianapolis-based festival of books is actually widespread and includes a lot for writers. The festival runs from Nov. 2–17 and has something different every day, I believe. Check out the festival's website to see the variety of authors and daily events.

I will be there on the final day as one of the closing speakers. I will be a speaker on Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2010, and will be speaking on "How to Get Your Work Published" at 6:30 p.m. Before and after my speech (from 5:30 to 8:30, loosely), there will be an author mingling event where people can ask me Q&A and just hang out.

The whole festival is put on by the JCC of Indianapolis and all events are at the main center on Hoover Road.
