Word Up: Long Island LitFest 2015 Schedule



Word Up: Long Island LitFest will be kicking off its inaugural launch on Sunday, May 31, from 1 to 5 p.m. This day of live, nonfiction readings is a unique celebration of words that will be held at a Gold Coast gem—Castle Gould at Sands Point Preserve—and was written about by Jennifer Fauci in the May 13 to 19 issue of Long Island Weekly that can be found here.

The festival is broken down into three, one-hour reading sessions with breaks in between for book sales and autographs. The keynote reader is the legendary Dick Cavett, with essays from his latest book, Brief Encounters: Conversations, Magic Moments and Assorted Hijinks.
