Can anyone tell me if they know how I can find Book Festivals in New Jersey and New York?

There is a wonderful book festival in Collingswood (just outside of Philadelphia) NJ in October. Collingswood is a town that is very supportive of the Arts. If it's not too far for you to travel, I'd say it's worth the trip. The festival also supports new and self-published writers. Check out the website http://www.collingswoodbookfestival.com/ (http://www.collingswoodbookfestival.com/)

I suspect you could do a search in google for "book festivals in New York and N.J." and find something.

Hope that helps!

You've already missed the best one, I think, but try to make it next year. http://newyorkbookfestival.com/

Collingswood is a lovely festival. In fact I have to send in my form before August 1, which is the deadline this year. It's usually Sept.1.

Last year it rained, so we were crammed into the High School, but if you get good weather it's outside and lots of fun.

Oh, and Philly had one this year, but I was too late to get in on it. So keep an eye out for that one too. It was huge. I'm going next year, I think.
