Mid-Columbia Literary Festival 2012 ends the way it started, with avid readers giving literary reviews tonight at Bookwalter Winery in Richland.
The final event begins at 6 p.m. today. Sharing the podium at About the Book will be Nancy Brouwer, Terry Carpenter, Jordan Chaney, Matt Meichle, Michelle Price and Barbara Nadeau.
Each speaker will give a short presentation on a favorite -- often undiscovered -- book, and the audience is given time to discuss literature and sample food and wine between talks.
LitFest is an annual celebration of authors sponsored by Columbia Basin College and supported by several community organizations. Annual offerings include author presentations, book signings, workshops, readings, recitations and writing contests -- all free to the public.
