Joseph Bruchac at 2008 National Book Festival

Update on Sep 30 2023: I (Debbie Reese) no longer recommend Bruchac's work. For details see Is Joseph Bruchac truly Abenaki?

Among those invited to participate in the 2008 National Book Festival is Joseph Bruchac. He will be in the "Teens and Children Pavilion" from 11:10 to 11:45 AM, and sign books from 12:30 to 1:30 on Saturday, September 27th.

Last year, two Native writers were there: Cynthia Leitich Smith, and N. Scott Momaday. View the webcast of her talk here and his here.

Note (Sept. 12, 2008):

I neglected to say that the National Book Festival takes place in Washington DC at the National Mall. Here's a link to the homepage for the festival.

Also! there's a "toolkit" for each author. Bruchac's materials include an interview that starts out with this question: "What sparked your imagination for your newest book, March Toward the Thunder?" Click here to get to that page.
