Looking Forward to Charlottesville

I'm doing some panels March 16-20 as a guest of the 17th Annual Viriginia Festival of the Book…but that's not why I can't wait to get there. I'm excited as a reader. The line-up they've got is incredible. Here are some highlights, including: 

And here's what's sold out at press time:The Help author Kathryn Stockett in an event sponsored by John and Renee Grisham; the traditionally sold-out festival luncheon, this year with the Newshour's Jim Lehrer, and the Crime Wave luncheon with author and TV series Bones producer Kathy Reichs. The good news: that still leaves 127 other events. For the 17th Virginia Festival of the Book, here are 17 events that caught our eye.

14. Screenwriting large and small. Doesn't everyone have a screenplay lurking, or is that just in L.A.? This panels covers all the screenwriting basics. Lee Goldberg (Diagnosis Murder) takes small-screen writing. Locals Hugh Wilson (First Wives ClubPolice Academy) and Paul Wagner (Out of Ireland) handle feature films and documentary writing respectively.

  1. You probably sipping a mint julep by the time you read this. Your Monk book featured at CUB groceries in Minneapolis. I read paperback, “Reincarnation of Peter Proud” by Max Einstein”. Predictable but not a bad read. Movie of same name with Michael Sarrazin not available in any format. I just did an article on the Betty White autobiography as related to NBC News in ’64 and me, Roy Neal and Arthur Godfrey. go to http://www.cheezymovies.blogspot.com
