Readers of all ages are welcome to a day of community bonding through literature. The festival features programs and panel discussions from dozens of esteemed writing experts. Novelists, poets, journalists, book publishers, literary agents, spoken word performers, children's book authors, and illustrators will come together to share their experiences and pro tips. The Scott Meyer Award and Young Writers Showcase will recognize the best poetry submissions, and there are special events to be announced for the festival's 10th anniversary. Editor-in-Chief emeritus of Simon and Schuster Michael Korda is the 2018 festival's honorary chairperson. The novelist and biographer wrote the current bestseller Alone: Britain, Churchill, and Dunkirk: Defeat into Victory. The Millbrook Literary Festival returns to Millbrook Library on May 19 from 10am to 5pm. (845) 677-3611.
