The Hudson Valley boasts a robust local publishing industry. Born out of the desire to bring the region's publishing resources together, this fair hosts an exhibitor's tent with McPherson & Company, Station Hill, Mayapple, Post Traumatic, Black Dome, and Purple Mountain. Thirty-nine writers, poets, and children's authors will participate, including Vernon Benjamin, who will discuss his new book, The Hudson Valley: From the Civil War to Modern Times; Evan Pritchard; and Lowell Thing. Hiking experts Carol and Dave White will discuss treks throughout the area. Violet Snow will lead a writers' workshop. Two panel discussions—one exploring documentary filmmaking in the Catskills and the other entitled "The Catskills As a Creative Muse"—will also be presented. This fair takes place on June 4 from 10am to 3pm at the Maurice D. Hinchey Catskill Interpretive Center in Mount Tremper, with help from WoodstockArts.
