Southern Oregon University’s Hannon Library hosts its third annual Ashland Book and Author Festival on September 20, 2014, 10 AM to 4 PM. This event features authors, publishers, and community organizations covering a wide range of literary interests. Come meet with writers from many genres, attend a variety of workshops and presentations, listen to author readings and, of course, buy books.


This year’s festival continues its tradition of bringing together the region’s literary community with an expanded array of events and activities. A series of workshops on writing, publishing, and book marketing offers guests the chance to benefit from the experiences of literary professionals. There will be a variety of presentations, including readings by winners of the Rogue Valley Messenger’s Short Fiction Contest, and panel discussions on Oregon history, mysteries, fantasy and science fiction, and Shakespeare. Authors will be available throughout the day to sell and sign books, give readings, and discuss their work. Also returning this year is the Kids Corner, with ongoing crafts and games for children. A complete list of participating authors and publishers will be available on the festival’s website, as well as the current event schedule for the day of the festival.


There is no admission fee to attend the festival, and free parking will be available on campus. For more information, contact Hannon Library Administration at 541-552-6816 or


This event is sponsored by the Friends of Hannon Library, SOU Alumni Association, Noble Coffee Roasters, Jackson County Library Systems, SMART, Friends of the Medford Library, and the Rogue Valley Messenger.
