There are plenty of great offerings at the 21st annual Indie & Small Press Book Fair, but we’ll just skip ahead to the most exciting of them all: Kelly Link! The indie publisher and author of all those brilliantly strange, unputdownable short-story collections—including her latest, Pretty Monsters—will be interviewed by blogger extraordinaire Lizzie Skurnick at 5 p.m. today. Other highlights include a potentially chilling discussion on the future of the book industry in the digital age (today at 1 p.m.); a chat with the amazing Katherine Anne Porter (Sunday at noon); the Literary Trivia Smackdown 2.0: The New York Review of Books vs. Lit Bloggers (Sunday at 4 p.m.); and the chance to buy books from more than 100 indie publishers from all over the world. We’d like to see you try that on Amazon.

Sat., Dec. 6, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Sun., Dec. 7, 11 a.m.-5 p.m., 2008
