SMN: Al Gore added to 2013 Savannah Book Festival

From Former vice president Al Gore joins 2013 Savannah Book Festival in the Savannah Morning News today:

To a list that already includes celebrity authors James Patterson, David Baldacci, T.C. Boyle, Dave Barry, Jeff Kinney, Bobby Deen and Gregg Allman, we can add another name — Al Gore.

The former vice president and Nobel Peace Prize winner will speak at the 2013 Savannah Book Festival on Feb. 16 at the Trinity United Methodist Church in Telfair Square, organizers announced today.

The most remarkable thing about this addition is that Gore won’t be doing a special appearance — he’ll fill the 10:15 a.m. slot at Trinity on Saturday, February 16th, as similar sessions with other authors are conducted at nearby venues.

Random House will publish Gore’s new book The Future at the end of this month.

There’s much more in Linda Sickler’s piece in the SMN today.
