Welcome to Word!
We’re ready for our 2017 festival, October 20-22, and we are pumped! We hope you are, too.
Have you purchased your ticket to the cocktail reception at the beautiful Blue Hill Inn on Friday, October 20, 5-6:30pm?
Toast Jonathan with a Manhattan (one of his favorite cocktails!) or a glass of wine and enjoy hearty hors d'oeuvres presented by Chef La Mason. Space is limited and we don't want to turn you away. Tickets for the reception, a fundraiser for Word, are $50 and can be purchased at Blue Hill Books, 207/374-5632, 26 Pleasant Street, Blue Hill. (If you aren’t able to attend but would like to make a donation, please send a check payable to BHCD with memo: Word to PO Box 438, Blue Hill, ME 04614.)
Other things for you to do:
- Sign up for workshops (details in the drop-down menu above).
- Mark your calendars for the Friday night keynote with Jonathan Lethem and Laura Miller.
- Get set for Saturday’s poetry crawl, kids’ activities, literary marketplace, and Spoken Words storytelling event.
