Boston Book Festival: a dinner party and books (and their authors)

Am I dreaming? I just found out that I am going to a dinner party with authors Dennis Lehane and Joseph Finder. I am the  back-up, back-up date for a friend whose first two picks (her husband and a charming, beautiful accomplished friend) fell through…I don’t mind being the A-minus list date – it will be such fun!  It is a dinner set up through the Boston Book Festival – you can click through to their site.  The second annual festival is October 16, 2010 and here is a video of highlights from the first one.

So – two constant and current loves of mine – books and food –  what could be better?  I know, the featured authors will be discussing how they feel about the film adaptations of their books!  Really, this is too much – I am someone who always “casts” the book for a movie – (Note to Hollywood, I am available) and usually my book group does it together – and I have to say, we are pretty good at it.

How do you feel when a favorite books becomes a movie?  Trepidacious? Excited?
