In 2012 I had the good fortune of reading from Get Your Pitchfork On! in a number of bookstores, libraries and other venues. This year, I would like to focus on attending farm-to-table events, homesteading fairs, organic food festivals, and other such events. Do you know of one? Please share it with me via the comments section below, the GYPO Facebook page or email, kristy @ kristyathens.com (no spaces).
And if you’re in Portland on Monday, January 7, please join me and some respected writer colleagues (Jon Bell, Kate Gray, Robert Hill, Gigi Little, Gina Ochsner, Joanna Rose, Scott Sparling and Yuvi Zalkow) at Powell’s Books downtown for a special presentation supporting Brave on the Page, a new book by Forest Avenue Press that is chock-full of essays and interviews about writing, including an interview with me that editor Laura Stanfill posted in May in her blog series, Seven Questions.
It should be an inspiring evening of shop talk, so if you’re a published writer or an aspiring one, please join us at 7:30. There will be copies of GYPO to sign, too!
