Orcas Center Out of Town
April 17–19, 2020
This festival is a boon to anyone who loves both literature and gorgeous island landscapes. You can attend a lit crawl with major authors, generate some masterpieces of your own at workshops and drop-in write-a-thons, hear book-themed music, and chime in on panel discussions, as well as meeting regional authors, poets, and publishers. This year's panelists and readers include Timothy Egan, Kij Johnson, Nicola Griffith, Luis Alberto Urrea, Rowan Ricardo Phillips, and Arthur Phillips.
