Holiday Book Fair: Sunday, Dec. 8

The Tradition Continues

Last December, we opened our doors for our first annual Holiday Book Fair, a celebration of small presses and their contribution to our vibrant literary community. The feedback we received was so positive that we decided to make it an annual tradition. This year's fair is set for noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8. 

Over the years, our Open House events have given an opportunity to meet workshop leaders, staff and Board members, register for upcoming workshops, buy gift certificates and learn about our programs. We’ll have refreshments through the afternoon.

Sunday's event will have all the features of an Open House and more. Once again we’ve invited editors from area small presses to display and sell their books and literary journals. The festival will be a good chance to meet them, find out what they're looking for, their submission deadlines and more. Over the years, our Sunday Open Door reading series has featured the work of several authors published by many of these presses.

Starting at 2 p.m. we will also have brief poetry and prose readings by several workshop leaders: Nan Fry, Danuta Hinc, Naomi Ayala, Mary McCarthy, John Morris, Adele Brown, Ann McLaughlin, Aaron Hamburger, and Basil White
