Across this country, readers and writers alike are debunking the notion that their activities are isolating or solitary. In fact, there is a strong writing community that loves to break the silence and share ideas whenever it can. And that community turns out in droves to discover new books, and share conversations and impressions at the dozens of festivals that take place across the country each year, many of them free.
Some of the biggest are in the fall, when hundreds of authors from around the world meet readers, engage in celebrations, talk about the literary issues of our times and have fun talking books — right across the country.
