The Northwest Bookfest literary festival is coming up this weekend at Northwest University, south of downtown Kirkland, Washington. This year’s focus is on the benefits and challenges of digital publishing and will include workshops, panels, exhibits and readings.

Some of the programs, panels and exhibits are free and open to the public. For $99, participants can attend two days of workshops on topics ranging from e-books and digital distribution to social networking and online marketing. On Saturday evening, November 2, several Kirkland restaurants and wine shops will team with writers for author presentations called “Wine and Words.”

Northwest Bookfest 2012
Did you ever notice that just about the time you decide to take a workshop or attend a reading or go to a conference, you discover another, equally tempting, workshop or reading or conference happening the same day? Well, here we go again!

Just a few days ago, we posted Michael Schein’s invitation to LiTFUSE, September 21-23 in Tieton, Washington. Now there’s the Northwest Bookfest, September 22-23 in Kirkland, Washington.

Northwest Bookfest promises an exhilarating agenda of panels, workshops, readings and vendors over the course of two days. All events are free.

Featured authors include Ivan Doig, Elizabeth George, David Guterson, Tony Angell, and among many poets, Jeannine Hall Gailey, David D. Horowitz, Christopher Jarmick, Jack McCarthy and Jack Prelutsky.
