Open air. Open book. Open mind.

What a wonderful weekend! Thank you to the authors for sharing their words, the residents for sharing their village, to the festival partners, sponsors and donors for their support and generosity, to the volunteers, Board of Directors and staff for their dedication, and to all who attended, for their enthusiastic love of the written word.

We’ll see you back in Eden Mills in 2020!
