This year is the 25th anniversary Fall for the Book Festival, held each year at George Mason University and at partner locations throughout the region. I was honored to work with Fall for the Book for many years, overseeing the marketing and assisting with programming, and I’m thrilled to be coming back this year for two events—both as a participant and as a moderator.
Here are the official event descriptions from the festival website!
MASON ALUMNI PROSE READING
Wednesday, October 11, 4:30 p.m.
Location: Fenwick Reading Room, 2nd Floor, Fenwick Library
Celebrate Mason Creative Writing alumni with three compelling prose writers: Dan Kois, author of the novel Vintage Contemporaries, and Art Taylor, author of the story collection The Adventure of the Castle Thief, and Other Expeditions and Indiscretions, and Benjamin Inks, author of Soft Targets. Kois’ novel is a joyful novel of writing, parenthood, loyalty, and New York City. Taylor’s collection provides twists and turns in a series of mysterious tales involving ghosts, detectives, and quests. Inks’ collection examines camaraderie, vulnerability, and the stories we tell about war. Sponsored by Mason Creative Writing.
Thursday, October 12, Noon
Location: Wilkins Plaza Tent, between the Johnson Center and Horizon Hall, George Mason University.
E.A. Aymar and Lindsay Cameron shock and thrill readers with uncovered secrets, murder, and sharp social commentary. Aymar’s No Home for Killers follows two troubled sisters trying to solve their brother’s death and confront their own demons. The New York Times calls it “an affecting tale of what we do for the ones we love.” Cameron’s No One Needs to Know is a fast-paced novel about the darkest secrets of New York’s wealthiest residents coming to light, and someone ending up dead. Author Robyn Harding says “this sly, witty thriller…is a juicy page-turner that will leave readers gasping—and guessing—until the end.” Aymar and Cameron will be in conversation with author Art Taylor.
