2021 Central Wisconsin Book Festival to be held across the region Sept. 17-26
For the City Times
WAUSAU – The annual Central Wisconsin Book Festival (CWBF) is back for its fifth year, and has grown so large in scope and size, it can’t be contained to just one county. This year’s festival will be held from Sept. 17 through the 26 at various locations throughout Marathon, Portage and Wood Counties, as well as virtually via the Zoom app.
As in years past, the CWBF has assembled an impressive list of authors, illustrators and poets, who will lead a variety of talks and workshops.
This year’s lineup consists of over 30 events featuring more than 40 writers. Highlights include a headlining virtual talk with best-selling novelist Taylor Jenkins Read (author of books like Malibu Rising, Daisy Jones & the Six and The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo), an interactive story time with Baptiste and Miranda Paul, poetry readings and workshops with Wisconsin Poet Laureate Dasha Kelly Hamilton, a reading with mystery author Kathleen Ernst, and more.
