The Boston Book Festival will kick off this weekend. Over 200 authors will be in attendance, including Colson Whitehead, Kami Garcia, Susan Faludi — and, if you’ll be there, you.
In the spirit of the Massachusetts Statewide eBook Project, the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners is calling for all festival attendees to help them write an eBook during the annual literary event. Opening lines will be provided by Massachusetts indie and SELF-e authors L.J. Cohen, P.J. Sharon and Gledé Browne Kabongo, all three of whom will be featured at a session for writers called “Indie Author Camp: Library as eBook Discovery Platform.” Building upon the opening lines, festival-goers are invited to get in touch with their creative sides, and try their hands at being an indie author for a day. Whether you lean towards non-fiction or have a flair for the fantastical, this project is a unique way to practice your storytelling skills and commemorate the Boston Book Festival.
