Author Study

The Literary Sojourn Author Study is a book discussion series designed to enhance the experience of reading our festival authors. Bud Werner Library provides book copies on loan for each group discussion. All of the discussion titles are also available in audio and e-book formats.

These discussions are designed for moderation and mingling with members of the Literary Sojourn organizing committee as we dive into select fiction, memoir and nonfiction titles by our featured authors. Open to anyone interested in participating, discussions are designed to be inclusive, supportive and meet the needs and interests of the group. Choose to join in for one or all the conversations as participants read and gather to talk about works from each of the featured writers.

Sign up for the live Sojourn book discussions of your choice at the individual dates linked under each title. After you sign up, you will receive additional information about how to secure a library loan of the book in the reading or listening format of your choice.
