Many of you have heard the call of the early bird, not for worms, but for the affordable registration rate of only 40 bucks at the Fall Literary Festival, for two days of fantastic readings, craft talks and panel discussions and book fair. But, alas, the early bird is packing up, her tiny calendar marked “fly” on July 31.
Many of you told us you’d expect to pay a lot more, but you know where our heart is: keeping it real for our folks in the Valley. Those of you who have a bit of extra have been generous in making gifts to support our work. Thank you.
If you’re a writer, be sure to get in on this. If you’re a reader, look it over. The quality of writers coming in, the eight featured writers and fifty presenters from the Valley, region, and throughout the Eastern U.S., is something we’re proud to crow about.
With sponsors like this, you know we’re in good company.
