Event Spotlight: Midwest Literary Festival

You've got to go to Aurora for this one, but my guess is it'll be worth it. The Midwest Literary Festival runs this entire weekend, with appearances from authors such as Sean Chercover, Karen Abbott, Daniel Wallace and even chef Rocco DiSpirito. You'll get to hear what it's like for an author when their novel is transformed into a hit movie, female perspectives on becoming a writer, writing great cookbooks, general writing career advice and much more. There are even workshops especially geared toward children. Workshops and discussions go throughout Saturday and Sunday, so be sure to check the schedule of events to ensure you see who and what you want to see. Call 630-844-4731 for more specific information.
