The Mid-Columbia Literary Festival wraps up at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Bookwalter winery in Richland with "About the Book."
This home-grown event combines two Northwest favorites -- wine and reading. It has proved to be one of the most popular parts of LitFest's annual celebration of the written word.
Eight avid readers from around the Tri-Cities will present short presentations on a title they think ought to be on your must-read list.
Bookwalter will sell wine and snacks. The event will be outside, weather permitting. There is plenty of time to socialize and enjoy the amenities between presentations.
Never miss a local story.
Hostess for the event is Betsy Sivula.
Book talkers are Fran DeLozier, retired president of Lockheed Martin Hanford, Inc. and CH2M Hill Hanford Group; Tom Moak, former legislator and longtime librarian with Mid-Columbia Libraries; leadership consultant Allen Johnson; Mike Pieracci, a clinical assistant professor of humanities and social sciences at Washington State University Tri-Cities; Scott R. Pierce, partner in the engineering firm ARES Corp.; Carl Van Hoff, retired from an eclectic career in education, government and utility relations; Jim Dillman, retired architect and active artist, sculptor and naturalist; and Shirley Falls, library media specialist at Jason Lee Elementary School.
Seating has gone fast, so it's a good idea to arrive early.
The event is free.
