Milford Readers & Writers Festival 2018
This year’s Milford Readers and Writers Festival aims to inspire conversations between people who love to read books and people who write them. This year’s Festival takes place September 28, 29, 30, 2018 in Milford, PA.
Building on the tradition of storytelling and the participatory energy of book clubs, the festival is an invitation to readers to share their thoughts, with the authors. Events take place at venues throughout the town and include both ticketed and free events. This year’s festival, includes Alan Alda, Susan Faludi, Tina Alexis Allen, and many more.
The Milford Readers and Writers Festival was originally conceived when, on yet, another cold and wet evening in March 2016, literary lawyer Bob Levine, author Suzanne Braun Levine, author Amy Ferris and Milford’s mayor and author Sean Strub had dinner at Bar Louis and fantasized about the possibility of creating a literary festival in Milford. Less than six months later, with a group of intense volunteers and collaborators, the fantasy became reality and Milford staged its very first Readers and Writers Festival that fall with a star line-up of authors, poets, performers, chefs, gardeners, conservationists and more.
The Milford Theater hosts the main stage. Past authors who have participated include, Gloria Steinem, MK Asante, John Berendt, Lee Child, Robin Morgan, Farai Chideya, Stephen Rubin, Patricia Bosworth, Martha Frankel, Roberta Glatz and many more. Additional events are happening at venues throughout the town, including Grey Towers National Historic Site, The Hotel Fauchère, 403 Broad, The Dimmick Inn, the Pike County Library, The Waterwheel Restaurant and Bar, The Columns Museum and more.
