The popular festival goes global next week!
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Fall for the Book literary festival. To celebrate, festival organizers are expanding their programming with the first annual Mini Fest, a one-day wintertime extension of the beloved October event!
On February 15th, four authors from around the world will speak in Fenwick Library on George Mason University’s Fairfax campus. First, Crystal S. Anderson will discuss Soul in Seoul: African American Popular Music and K-pop. Next, human-rights activist Ava Homa will talk about her novel Daughters of Smoke and Fire. Then, the Cheuse Center for International Writers will present its Ghanaian writer-in-residence, Bisi Adjapon, who will discuss her novel Daughter in Exile with author Helon Habila and artist Bennie Herron. Finally, Rashmi Sadana will take readers to India with The Moving City: Scenes from the Delhi Metro and the Social Life of Infrastructure.
All events are free and open to the public. We hope to see you there! View the full schedule and learn more here.
