Christopher Moore and Markus Zusak at UH tomorrow

Tomorow's Celebrate Reading Festival features Christopher Moore, author of "Lamb" and Markus Zusak, who wrote "The Book Thief."

The event starts at 9 a.m. and ends at 2 p.m., with visiting authors taking part in the opening and closing sessions. It's too late to preorder lunch, but anyone who wants to participate can show up tomorrow.

Others taking part at the annual literacy event aimed at middle school to college students include Kealoha, Witi Ihimaera, Kaui Hart Hemmings, Zusak, Lois-Ann Yamanaka, Victoria Kneubuhl, Ryan Oishi and Usma Aslam Khan. They, along with other local writers, will lead smaller group sessions on various topics.
