Woodstock Writers Festival

Lots of amazing and fabulous things have happened in my life, but putting together the Woodstock Writers Festival has been one of the highlights. Along with my partners--- Abigail Thomas (A Three Dog Life), Susan Richards (Chosen by a Horse), and Barry Samuels (co-owner of Woodstock's indie bookshop, The Golden Notebook --- we have put together a lineup of writers that literally reads like a who's who of memoir (this year the festival is Celebrating the Memoir). Everyone we called signed on, including Susan Orlean (The Orchid Thief), Julie Powell (Julie and Julia), Ruth Reichl (Tender to the Bone), Dani Shapiro (Slow Motion), Marion Winik (First Comes Love), , Shalom Auslander (Foreskin's Lament)... the list goes on and on! Check out the website and pass it on to all writers and readers in your life.
