The Arkansas Literary Festival brings a diverse roster of presenters — including award-winners, big names, musicians, filmmakers, journalists and artists — for a premier gathering of readers and writers in Arkansas. This year’s festival features more than 70 outstanding authors.
Come with us to celebrate literature in Arkansas and across America as we kick off the local countdown to “The Great American Read,” premiering on AETN May 22. In this special series, we’ll join PBS stations nationwide as Americans vote to choose the country’s favorite novel. The eight-part series explores and celebrates the power of reading, told through the prism of the United State’s 100 best-loved novels (as chosen in a national survey). Together, we’ll investigate how and why writers create their fictional worlds, how we as readers are affected by these stories and what these 100 books have to say about our diverse nation and shared human experience. Curious? Learn more about “The Great American Read,” and check out the 100 featured books here.
The Arkansas Literary Festival “Author! Author!” party will be held Friday, April 26, at 7 p.m. in the Central Arkansas Library System Main Library at 100 South Rock Street, Little Rock. Partygoers will have the opportunity to toast the festival authors at this fete featuring hors d’oeuvres and librations. Festival books will be available for purchase during this party, which is geared toward adults.
