Festival Fever: All LIT Up, 5/21/11
After a one year hiatus, All LIT Up is back on Saturday.
Produced by the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses, the day-long Hudson Valley Literary Festival celebrates literature and literary publishing with a magazine and small press book fair at the Hudson Opera House in Hudson from 11am-4pm on Saturday. Hundreds of books and magazines published by regional and national independent literary publishers will be on sale for only $2 an issue and $4 a book. Many of the publishers will be on hand to meet & greet both readers and writers.
Following the book fair, the action moves to Hudson Wine Merchants for a 5pm reading and reception. Featured readers will include poet and novelist Rebecca Wolff, food memoirist Jonathan Dixon and poet Monica Youn. A wine and cheese reception will follow the readings.
