Looking for something to do but low on cash? Check out the Boston Book Festival this Saturday in Copley Square. The festival is drawing together an ecclectic group ranging from Alicia Silverstone to Ken Burns to Curious George. In addition to the more than 90 authors and presenters who are participating, there will be more than 40 outdoor exhibitors, children's activities, and book signings. I'm excited to head to Austin this weekend, but I would have loved to attend the Boston Book Festival -so check it out if you are in town.
The Boston Book Festival will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., at the Boston Public Library, Old South Church, Trinity Church, and outdoors in Copley Square. Unless otherwise noted, all events are free and open to the public. You can find out more by visiting the festival's website, http://www.bostonbookfest.org/.
