Clinton Book Festival.
On Saturday August 27, 2016, Clinton Public Library will host its second Clinton Book Festival from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The theme for this one-day festival is “A Celebration of Books, Reading, and the Book Arts,” and will primarily focus on writers, readers, and artists from Clinton and surrounding Iowa-Illinois Gateway area communities. The festival will include information sessions on the grounds of the Clinton Public Library. The programs will consist of readings, panel discussions, presentations, demonstrations, and other activities geared toward book lovers of all ages and backgrounds. Other space on the festival grounds will be designated for exhibit booths, food vendors, and community information. Clinton Public Library is the organizer and sponsor of the event. We are accepting sponsors, exhibitors, volunteers, vendors, and session participants, so anyone who is interested is welcome to join us.
