The Philadelphia Book Festival sponsored by the Free Library begins today and runs through this coming Saturday. There is a great mix of local authors and national figures with visits at various branches throughout the city. So many that listing them all here would be both time consuming on my part and not as easy to follow as the Free Library’s own compendium. So, here is the link to the festival program on the Free Library site:
