This past Saturday, March 21, was our 2nd annual Voices of the Middle West literary celebration, and we are so unbelievably thrilled with how it turned out!
The goal of the all-day festival is to present a forum to discuss the Midwestern voice in literature, the way it is presented, as well as to showcase the diversity of presses, publishers, readers and authors who call this place home. We were delighted to have partnered with the Residential College at the University of Michigan to put this on, and the turnout was absolutely incredible—better than we ever imagined!
Thank you to everyone that stopped by, to all of our wonderful exhibitors who shared time with us at the bookfair, to our presenters who wowed us with their panels, and this year’s keynote speaker, Stuart Dybek, who delivered an inspiring, poignant talk.
For those who couldn’t make it, we’ve copied a few of our favorite photos below, and we hope to see you in 2016!
