One of the best surprises of 2018 was the first Orcas Island Lit Fest. The event snuck up on us (and many), appearing full-blown and seemingly out of nowhere onto the literary scene. (Don't worry, festival organizers — we know amazing events don't come out of nowhere! We celebrate your work!)
We’re delighted and grateful to have the Lit Fest here to sponsor us this week, and to give our readers an extra push to get tickets now for the second year of the festival, happening April 5–7, 2019. The lineup is extraordinary; featured authors include Nicola Griffith and Teresa Marie Mailhot, and the list of panelists includes both national and local names that make our hearts flutter.
Three days of writing, readings, panels, and conversation, on one of the Puget Sound’s most beautiful islands? Sign yourself up now. We’ll look for you in the crowd!
