This Literary Festival in the Pacific Nothwest had not caught my attention until today.
For 4 days, Wordstock allows passionate discussions on the future of words and showcases books and authors (they still exist) not to forget plays and a VIP dinner.
It offers different things to different crowds.
Book lovers will be happy with just the Book Fair on October 9 and 10 ($7 for one day, $10 for two).
Aspiring writers and those with works in progress might want to sign up for some of the workshops over the week-end (October 9-10).
Teachers and kids are also offered their own menus.
As for the authors, not many celebrities on the Long List (at least they are not famous to me).
Interested in 2, 3 or 4 Days of Wordstock, go ahead, purchase your tickets and fire up your brain in Portland, Oregon this week.
