Literary Festival in the North Georgia Mountains

If you enjoy the writing created by the fine men and women that call Georgia home, then you won't want to miss the annual Georgia Literary Festival on September 28 - 30 in Blue Ridge, Ga. Free and open to the public, this "moveable feast" celebrates Georgia's rich literary heritage with fun activities for all ages. While enjoying the North Georgia mountains, attendees will have the opportunity to listen to award-winning poets and authors, including Bettie Sellers, Philip Lee Williams, Amy Blackmarr, Joe Dabney, Dr. Helen Lewis, Dana Wildsmith, and Ethelene Jones. The late Appalachian poet and novelist Byron Herbert Reece will be the honored writer at this year's festival. Guests will also enjoy a children's character provided by GPB.
