This year marks the 6th annual Ann Arbor Book Festival. Events have been going on throughout May, with the big street fest happening this weekend! The festival’s mission is “to promote reading, heighten awareness of literacy challenges, and showcase the rich culture of the written word in Michigan and beyond.” There are oodles of events happening all over town with an emphasis on books and reading. The events include book release parties, author readings, panels, fundraisers, live music, a spelling bee, and more! Be sure to check the full schedule for May 15- 17 to see what suits your fancy.
Saturday at the festival also marks the announcement of the winners of AADL’s “It’s All Write!” Short Story Contest.
