MILLBROOK, N.Y. -- The Eighth Annual Millbrook Literary Festival will take place on May 21.
The Festival will feature nationally recognized authors, including Lauren Belfer, Gail Carson Levine, Jim DeFelice, and Valerie Martin, and introduce up-and-coming authors such as Owen King, the graphic novelist son of Stephen King.
It also will support talented local and regional writers with a workshop meet-up, a publishing panel, book-to-screenplay writing panel, and a new writing award in honor of Festival founder Scott Meyer.
The festival's many community development programs include a panel with Fountains residents sharing their experiences with young readers, the annual Young Writers’ Showcase, and a number of events for children and teens. Many more authors and illustrators will be participating throughout the day at the Millbrook Library on Franklin Avenue.
