Books Acquired Recently: Albany Book Festival

Yesterday I went to the first Albany Book Festival. It was an enjoyable event with a mix of panels, author signings, and authors selling their books, many at reduced prices. I ended up spending about $85.00 total for the seven books I acquired, so about $12.00 per book, which is not bad. I had heard of Whitehead, Ostriker, and Dentz before (and was able to have them sign their books), and discovered the other authors as a result of the event. Parks’s and Whitehead’s books are fiction, Dentz’s is a mixed-genre memoir, and the rest are poetry.
