Catfish Literary Festival

Catfish Literary Festival Returns to Athens-Limestone Public Library

The 4th annual Catfish Literary Festival is headed to the Athens-Limestone County Public Library on Saturday April 28th.

This one-day festival will feature 20 writers, including Limestone County writer Jerry R. Barksdale, author of Cornbread Chronicles, and David Howard, author of non-fiction crime saga Chasing Phil.  The festival offers book-lovers a unique opportunity to connect with authors.  They can chat with them, get autographed books, and sit in on writing panels and book readings throughout the day.

Khristina Chess, author of several books for teens, will be returning to the festival for a third time.  She feels the literary festivals provide a unique chance for interaction between authors and readers.  “As an author, having a chance to meet and talk with my readers in a comfortable setting like the library and during the panel discussion is so valuable.  It’s a wonderful experience.”

The Catfish Literary Festival will be Saturday, April 28th, 10:00a – 3:00p.  

The festival is free to the public.
