The SMOL Fair is an alternative book fair which will be 'live' from March 3-7, 2021. In addition to featuring small presses, there will be readings and opportunities for readers to connect with authors and publishers. Participation is 100% free. You can learn more here. And I'm thrilled to let you know I'll be moderating two panels under the banner of my shop HEFT Creative Strategies:
What now? Authors discuss their debuts
Day & Time: Saturday, 2pm
Please join us for a panel discussion with four debut authors who’ve created exciting new work that is contemporary, political and very personal.
PANELISTS: Nancie Meng/Tea with Dad, Barbara Newman/The Dreamcatcher Codes, Marc Sheinbaum/Memories Live here, Sarina Prabasi/The Coffeehouse Resistance.
Fresh Takes: A Discussion of Horror and Fantasy and the State of the World
Day & Time: Sunday, 2pm
A wide-ranging discusion of horror and fantasy (with a young adult vibe) and what that looks like now given the state of the world.
PANELISTS: Amanda Headlee/Till We Become Monsters, BB Russell/Kindreds, Lee Matthew Goldberg/The Ancestor, Orange City, Gregory Norris/Ex Marks The Spot
Both panels will also serve as SMOL special edition live recordings of This Podcast Will Change Your Life.
Please check out the fair and the panels and as needed let me know if you have any questions.
