I just love book festivals, but BooksNJ has a special place in my heart. First, it’s right in my backyard in Paramus, New Jersey. Second, since it’s local, many of my FAVORITE local peeps will be speaking and appearing on panels. Third, it only happens every other year, so it’s got a sparkly air of rarity around it. Mark your calendar: June 14th, 2015.
Oh, and did I mention it’s on my birthday? Yeah. Best. Birthday. Ever.
I am on three panels. Stop by! We’re also doing book signings and there will be authors of all genres there. If you are within shouting distance of New Jersey, please pencil it in to your calendar. If not, stay tuned for pictures. Here are the panels I’ll be on:
1:00 p.m. – Coming to America: The Immigrant Experience

2:20 p.m. – Let’s Get Digital
