I left for London for a book tour on Monday after Literary Sojourn. It's lovely, but I keep thinking I could be in Steamboat...
The generous hospitality, postcard perfect setting, and lasting dialogue has made Literary Sojourn among my favorite American literary programs. I didn’t want to leave, but I returned home enriched and enlarged, my faith in the written word powerfully affirmed.
What a glorious, stupendous program you put together. I was humbled, truly humbled.
Literary Sojourn remains one of my all-time favorite book events! You do a marvelous thing for readers and writers.
I loved being here in my community of readers and writers. I need to be inspired and re-inspired constantly by other authors, reminding me it is possible to do this task we do.
The courtesy was top drawer, the arrangements impeccable, the site out of dreamscape, and the audience was made up of readers. What more can an itinerant author want?
Never before have I seen readers open up to books in such a generous and inspiring manner.
Thank you so much for an exceptional two days. I've been to many festivals but yours is truly unique. It's rare to find a group of people so passionate about books.
Lots of fun! Very much thank you and much respect. It was truly an amazing, amazing event.
Thank you for such a wonderful event…for bringing together readers & writers so warmly and so intelligently.
Literary Sojourn is not only a opportunity to exchange ideas with other writers, eat good food, and meet with engaged readers—some of whom travel quite far—in a gorgeous setting. You also get to experience a singular day where literature is the most important thing in the room. I left Steamboat Springs energized and deeply grateful.
Literary Sojourn is the sort of weekend that helps you rediscover the echo of the written word.
Thank you for a wonderful weekend in sunny, snowbound, completely enchanting, Alpine-glowing Steamboat Springs! It was an inspiring celebration of the written word.
The most convivial of literary events.
The best show in the West—this is one class act.
I had an incredible time in Steamboat Springs. Great crowd, and the event was expertly run. Highly recommended.
I'm in Miami this morning, at the tail end of the US tour for Station Eleven, and I have to tell you, when I look back at the tour the festival in Steamboat Springs stands out as such a highlight. It's a wonderful festival and I'm so happy that I had an opportunity to take part in it.
It was lovely, great people, great event, wonderful fellow authors, and of course your incredible hospitality.
I loved you all, loved Steamboat Springs. I've done countless events over my nearly four decades of being a writer, but your Literary Sojourn was one of the handful of special highlights.
Of all the events I have taken part in, Literary Sojourn remains a highlight - fantastically organised, with care and consideration. I was honoured to share the stage with such varied and interesting authors and to hear their stories as well as sharing mine. The readers at Literary Sojourn are a welcoming, intelligent and friendly bunch, and I was very lucky to spend my time in their company in the breathtaking setting that is Steamboat Springs. A magical weekend.
The Literary Sojourn is a rare event. Rare in its warmth, rare in its beauty, rare in the love of books that one feels everywhere in this splendid place. It's a first rate experience for both reader and writer.
It was an exceptional event, embracing, well-organized, fun, beautiful. I was happy to be included.
This is a deep, elegant, compassionate, smart, kind and wild event.
One of the best literary festivals I've ever participated in. The atmosphere was electric. A great success!
What a fantastic & memorable weekend. It really doesn't get any better for an author. A true love fest.
The organizers are consummate pros, the town is quirky and interesting, and the audience is fun, smart, well read, and wonderfully appreciative. I had a blast.
