Twin Cities Book Festival
October 12, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
Every year, the Twin Cities Book Festival provides ASL interpretation for a selection of events, and we would like to submit these readings for you to post on your web site. I have attached a PDF of all the authors who will be ASL interpreted during their event at the Twin Cities Book Festival.
The 19th Annual Twin Cities Book Festival, sponsored by the locally produced Rain Taxi Review of Books, is scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 12th, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in St. Paul. This literary extravaganza, which brings together authors, publishers, readers, booksellers, and more for a daylong celebration, will take place at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds at 1265 North Snelling Avenue, in the Progress Center building located at the corner of Cooper St. and Randall Ave. As always, the event is free and open to the public.
This year's featured visiting authors who will be ASL interpreted include Susan Straight, Faith Sullivan, Aarti Namdev Shahani, Sheila O’Connor Linda Bostrom Knausgard, David Shields, Lewis Hyde, William Kent Krueger, and Leif Enger. More information about these authors along with the complete schedule of events is now posted online here: https://twincitiesbookfestival.com/festival-events/.
