Wisconsin Book Festival (Sept 29-Oct 3)

September 27th, 2010

Need an opportunity to feed the mind and to stir the soul? If so, consider taking a break to sample the bountiful harvest of author presentations and book discussion forums that comprise the annual, fall Wisconsin Book Festival.

The theme for the book festival this year is that of “beliefs” and what that may connote for writers and their readers–as they step outside their comfort zones to examine a world of ideas, to articulate and to share what they hold dear, and to honor and to appreciate the other–be it a place, an experience, or a point-of-view.

Featured speakers include: Deborah Blum, Fabu, Lauren Groff, Michele Norris, Mukoma wa Ngugi, Gary Shteyngart, Monique Truong, among many others.

The Friends of UW-Madison Libraries is among the festival sponsors.
