Virtual Winter Sojourn

Saturday, January 22, 2022 - 1:30pm to 4:15pm
  • Virtual Event via Crowdcast
Bud Werner Library presents a special edition of our Literary Sojourn festival of authors, online and free for everyone!

Omicron has forced Winter Sojourn to transition to a virtual event. Everyone is invited to join us for a FREE streaming pop-up celebration of authors and readers designed to reunite book lovers despite our pandemic pause.

In the spirit of the library's Literary Sojourn mothership event, Winter Sojourn features presentations by award-winnig authors Maaza Mengiste, Vendela Vida, Mary Roach and Jess Walter, who will individually talk about their inspiration for the stories and characters in their published works. Learn more about all the authors on the Winter Sojourn website, and sign up at the link above to join us for the live online event on Crowdcast.

1:30–2:10 pm MST | Welcome |  Jess Walter

2:45–3:00 pm MST  |  Intermission
3:00-3:35 pm MST  |  Maaza Mengiste
