Here are the authors who were on the Smart Chicks Kick It YA Tour at the Northwest Bookfest today:
This morning, I watched authors from the Jack Straw Writers Program read some of their original work. As is the case in all group readings or efforts, I found a few much more compelling than others. I loved listening to Larissa Min read from her Breaking English project about her parents moving from Korea to Rio and I liked Robert Lamirande’s piece about art/artists, though capturing the pretentiousness of art/artists might not have been the best choice for an event filled with artists of a sort. (it wasn’t lost on lowly bloggers who have law degrees but feel like puking every time they think about practicing law)
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is 2,100 words on Northwest Bookfest 2011.
