Faulkner Society Words and Music Festival

It’ll be a busy week for literary folks in New Orleans with the Pirate’s Alley Faulkner Society 2010 Words and Music Festival. It should be a good festival, with not only lots of readings and panels, but also theatre, music, food, dancing. As a bonus, the ghost of William (“Bill”) Faulkner is said to haunt the festival.

Here’s the schedule of events:

2010 Words and Music Festival Schedule

I’ll be appearing at two events.

The first is the opening event of the festival, a Master Class for Students and Teachers, together with author Tim O’Brien. I’ll be presenting the winners of the 2010 high school short story competition. That’s Wednesday, November 17, 10:00-11:30 a.m. at Le Petit Theatre du Vieux Carre in New Orleans.
The next is a panel discussion on The Literature of War & Collateral Damage: The Art of Telling Your Favorite War Story. That’ll be with authors Stewart O’Nan, Josh Russell, and Elise Blackwell. Saturday, November 20, 8:30-10:00 a.m. in the Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans.
