Millbrook, May 15
Some old friends are hosting a book festival in one of my favorite small towns, Millbrook, N.Y., May 15.
The festival is a good excuse to visit a really beautiful part of the Hudson Valley. Basically, the entire town becomes the center of the book world for a day. Writers, local and otherwise, mix with readers and take over the place for seven or eight hours. There'll be readings, signings, music, food and, rumor has it, beer somewhere . . . And at some point Jane Bryant Quinn will straighten out everybody's finances.
I'll be at the library around 2:30 for a panel discussion. Say hi if you're in town.
