If you love the written word, you won't want to miss Tulsa LitFest. This first annual event brings together diverse literary artists and writers from all over the country to collaborate, inspire and enrich the Tulsa community for three days of author readings, film screenings, panels, workshops and more. Speakers will include Vanity Fair contributor Erin Carlson, New Yorker Poetry Editor Kevin Young, memoirist Kiese Laymon and other distinguished guests.
The event takes place across multiple venues throughout the city and will include a small press panel, a Native writing and theater workshop, a talk with Michael Chaiken, curator of the Bob Dylan Archive at the University of Tulsa, and so much more. All events are free of charge. Whether you're an aspiring writer, a voracious reader or a curious newcomer to the world of literature, you won't want to miss this bookish bash in Tulsa.
