As a kick off to the celebration of its 70th anniversary, The Georgia Review, in partnership with UGA Creative Writing, UGA Press, Avid Bookshop and other participants, will host a literary weekend at the Foundry, 295 E. Dougherty St., Oct. 7 from 7-9 p.m., and on Oct. 8 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The lineup for the program includes a variety of readings, workshops, panel discussions, activities for children and a book fair featuring Avid Bookshop and a host of small presses and journals. Among the highlights will be a storytelling workshop by Rabbit Box, music by songwriter Claire Cronin, appearances by poets Stacy Szymaszek and Simone White of New York’s St. Mark’s Poetry Project and a show-closing reading by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Sharon Olds, whose work appears in the fall 2016 issue of The Georgia Review.
The Fall Lit Ball is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. All events are open free to the public.
