2013 Lit Fest Events & Book Fair

(jump to Book Fair events)          (download a pdf of evening & book fair activities)

Last year, the First Annual Book Fair at Lit Fest was a great success--and this year, we're looking for more of the same. We've added a whole other day of author readings, signings, and craft talks, and of course, Tattered Cover has gathered together a great book garden for Lit Fest participants to harvest. This includes books on the craft of writing, books published by Lighthouse instructors, 2013 Lit Fest guest authors, past and future Writer's Studio guests, and so many more! From Thursday, June 20 to Saturday, June 22 join us in the Book Fair tent [open from 9 AM to 5 PM], and help us reach the goal of $10,000 in sales. A percentage of the total sales will be donated to Lighthouse from Tattered Cover--all the better reason to save up now in order to give the gift of reading to yourself or someone else!

Here's a look at upcoming Lit Fest @Night events, followed by the Book Fair author reading schedule:
