Brave on the Page at Wordstock!

Amber Keller, Sherri Hoffman and Mary Milstead, who all contributed essays to Brave on the Page, visit at Wordstock, Portland’s annual literary festival.

Children’s book author Shasta Kearns Moore, whose interview is in Brave on the Page, signs my personal copy of the book. I’m hoping to get all 42 signatures!

There weren’t as many people packed into the Oregon Convention Center for Wordstock this year. The main part of the festival was held October 13 and 14.

Kristy Athens, author of Get Your Pitchfork On!, read some entertaining passages during her appearance at Wordstock on Sunday. She is one of the 15 authors interviewed in Brave on the Page.

There you have it–my own personal gallery of Wordstock photos.

I worked like crazy in August and September to launch Brave on the Page before this October 13-14 weekend, and it was definitely worth it. I had so much fun seeing many of the contributors wander by the Espresso Book Machine booth, meeting other writers and chatting with exhibitors. I wrote about Day 1 here, Day 2 here, and the highlights here.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Espresso Book Machine booth to ask questions and say hello!
