OutWrite BookFest 13

I had a wonderful time at the OutWrite Book Festival this year. The festival took place in the Reeves Center at 14th and U Streets. I took a picture of the beautiful mobiles that hang over the main hall. I was on the Young Adult/New Adult panel with two other authors–Brian Centrone (pictured) and Brittany Fonte (pictured). I stuck around afterwards to listen to various readings and panels, and I bought a copy of Tom Cardamone’s new anthology, The Lavender Menace: Tales of Queer Villany (pictured). I got to meet author Richard McCann (pictured) and legendary Violet Quill author Andrew Holleran(pictured).

The best part? My 82-year old mother came to hear me read! How cool is that?
