Brattleboro Literary Festival

This past weekend, Brattleboro held its annual "Literary Festival." It attracts very well-known authors like Richard Russo and Claire Messud, and many others. There never seem to be any "duds." And it's all free. It goes on for two days in multiple venues, maybe 50-60 authors or more all told. It's amazing for a small town. 

I sang at a funeral Sat. a .m. 
in Dummerston, but I got to hear  the two authors mentioned above, plus a debut Korean novelist, Yoojin Grace Wuertz. All three were excellent: they talked about their work, read selections and answered questions. Ellen heard several others.
