Join us for the Sixth Annual Ashland Literary Arts Festival on Saturday, October 28, from 10 am to 4 pm.
This year’s festival explores independent story and thought throughout the entire Cascadia region, celebrating not only books, but all forms of expression: literature, poetry, journalism, art, lyrics, comics, film, and documentary.
The event will include a wide range of activities for everyone to enjoy—writing workshops, author readings, film viewings, storytelling and crafts for children, and even a Wonder Woman costume contest!
You can find the complete festival schedule on Sched:
Festival events are free and open to the public. Free parking will be available (print-friendly parking map). Attendees can also enjoy concessions from Sultan’s Delight food truck and Sweet Cream hand-crafted ice cream.
Regular weekend library services will be available during normal business hours. Students can use LIB 114 for quiet computing space during the event. Study rooms will only be available on a first-come, first-served basis that day (no reservations), and all conference rooms will be in use by festival events.
