Welcome to the fourth annual Central Wisconsin Book Festival!
How the heck does a book festival take place during a time of pandemic-induced social distancing? Well, like so many of our activities these days, it will happen virtually.
In this, our fourth year, all 17 of The Central Wisconsin Book Festival events will be held online. Due to the still-rising COVID-19 case count in central Wisconsin, our organizers decided this was the best course of action to keep everyone safe.
In many ways, this all-virtual festival is a blessing. We are hosting authors Joy Harjo, Timothy Egan, and Tiffany Midge, as well as others we could not likely bring to Central Wisconsin in person. Also, attendees won’t have to travel or choose between events because we set them up to run one at a time. Plus, you can stay in those pajamas (or dress up if you’re feeling festive) with the food and drinks of your choice, all in the comfort and safety of home.
We can’t say whether this will be the new normal for our festival. But we can tell you we’ve worked just as hard planning this virtual festival as we have in the past, and we hope you’ll enjoy yourselves just as much.
You can find more information about all of our events, including info on tuning into our Zoom events, in the “Schedule” section of this website. Information also is available at our Facebook page.
