Literary lovers need to check out the Festival of Books in Deadwood, SD. There is going to be a plethora of authors presenting their works and talking about their genres. I'm not sure what you call a group of authors. I know it's pride of lions and flock of geese. My best bet is coffee house. You can go and see a coffee house of authors. Some might argue that a wine bar of authors would be more accurate, but let's not incite vice in the underage aspiring writers.
While the pamphlet states that the festival will go from Friday through Sunday, it looks like the majority of the action is happening on Saturday. There will be speakers on various subjects, mostly sorted by category into children's/Y.A., fiction, history/tribal, non-fiction, poetry, and writer's support. A lot of the talks in the same category will be held in the same building such children's/Y.A. topics being held in Lead-Deadwood Elementary.
Not all of the events are free, and some that are free still require a ticket, so go online and register. Then go and enjoy a day filled with books. Of course, that is every day for the High Plains Writers.
