Newburyport is my favorite city and I’m not just saying that because I used to live there and hope to live there again soon. It is my favorite because it hold events like the first annual Newburyport Literary Festival, which is next weekend (April 28-30). For this first year, the festival will focus on the work of Andre Dubus (ooooh, do I love his stories! oh!), who lived in a town near Newburyport.
The main day of the festival appears to be Saturday, as it is jam packed with events and readings. I’m excited and planning on attending and will report back here afterwards.
