The Elgin Literary Festival is a free celebration of the written word taking place at the Hemmens Cultural Center.
The Festival aims to highlight bookish culture and provide writers and readers a place to create and appreciate the art of writing.
Area Author Karly Kirkpatrick is teaming up with Bravo Magazine, Side Street Studio Arts and the Elgin Cultural Arts Commission to feature readings, book signings, discussion panels, more - free and open to the public!
Visit the book sale from 11am to 1pm to meet The Local Tourist founder Theresa L. Goodrich. You can also pick up your copies of her Two Lane Gems book series!
For your reading enjoyment, by the founder of The Local Tourist:
"If John Steinbeck earned a Nobel Prize in Literature shortly after publishing Travels with Charley, then Theresa should start planning a trip to Oslo, Norway, because Two Lane Gems is every bit the book Travels with Charley was. And then some." ~Amazon review
