Back-to-school events for college students
Oct. 15: Boston Book Festival
Bookworms will unite at the third Boston Book Festival in Copley Square. Authors like Richard Russo, Gregory Maguire, Julia Alvarez, and Chuck Klosterman will have readings or signings in the Boston Public Library, Old South Church, Trinity Church, or Back Bay Events Center. Tickets are free but events fill up fast, so guests can pay $10 for guaranteed seating.
