Decatur Book Festival

Like most of you, I have been living in denial of the fact that it's, well, August, and the new semester is starting soon. As a result, I've been pretending that Labor Day Weekend is months and months away.

All of this is to say that I had not paid much attention to the schedule for Decatur Book Festival, and just looked at it. If you are planning to be in town over Labor Day, there's a lot to put on the calendar, including our own Natasha Tretheway, and the sometimes brilliant, always unpredictable Sherman Alexie. Charles Frazier -- of Cold Mountain and Thirteen Moons -- is delivering the keynote, but what is more interesting to me is that he's being joined by Myrtle Driver Johnson, who translated the latter novel (about Cherokee removal) into the Cherokee language.

I'll definitely come to hear Alexie speak. The time I heard him previously was rather amazing.
