September 28, 8:00 AM – October 2, 5:00 PM
Our programming includes another diverse festival with over 30 unique events for readers of every age and taste. We design with maximum audience participation in mind; with time for questions and a chance to engage with authors as they sign books.
We’ve includes the stories of women, the stories of Indigenous writers, writers of different experiences, cultural backgrounds, and orientations. We haven’t forgotten our roots in good story-telling, presenting a variety of uplifting, entertaining, and thought-provoking fiction and non-fiction events.
Don’t miss Mother Tongue: Identities in Verse on September 30th at 4:30pm ET. Sadiqa de Meijer speaks with a powerhouse trio of poets in this dynamic event. In their latest collections of poetry and essays, Nancy Jo Cullen (Nothing Will Save Your Life), Gillian Sze (Quiet Night Think: Poems & Essays), and Sarah Tsiang (Grappling Hook) take a lyrical, unflinching look at the intimate and messy realities of motherhood, femininity, desire, and identity, while concurrently pondering worldly issues of climate change, capitalism, and social justice.
