Boston Teen Author Festival

22 Sep

Hey Creative Writing Club! This weekend will be our first outing of the year. As I said on Wednesday, most outings will not be this last-minute or be so long as this one.

Saturday is the Boston Teen Author Festival in Cambridge! Doors open at 9:30 am and the opening panel begins at 10, so we will be meeting BY 8:45 in front of 100 Bay State/Bay State dining hall (the side facing Kenmore Square, not Bay State Road). We will be taking the T from Kenmore to Park Street on the green line and then transferring to the red line to the Harvard stop. From there we will walk to the Cambridge Public Library, the site of the fest!

The festival is free (yay!) but please bring a Charlie Card or money for a Charlie Card (which you can get at Kenmore station) to pay for the trip on the T there and back. Also, there will be an opportunity to buy books and have them signed by the authors – credit and debit is accepted (you can also bring copies you already own to get signed). The festival does not provide lunch, so either pack some food or we can eat in Harvard Square, so you might also need money for that.

The last panel ends at 3:00 and then signing is from 3:15-5:00, so there is not a set time we will be leaving, we’ll play it by ear.

There will be 35 authors and 1o panels. We can each go to three panels, and you can choose which ones you would like. For a list of authors and panels, and for more info, check out their website:

See you on Saturday!!!
