Books in Bloom Literary Festival: a Celebration for Writers and Readers was established in 2005 by the Carroll and Madison Public Library Foundation as its signature event to promote the value of books and reading. The Books in Bloom Co-chairs are Jean Elderwind and Lin Wellford, directors on the Foundation Board.
The Festival provides an opportunity for the public to meet accomplished authors, and to hear them read from or speak about their work. Aspiring writers learn about various aspects of writing and publishing, and avid readers are introduced to authors working in a wide variety of genres. It all takes place amid the colorful flower gardens of the historic 1886 Crescent Hotel and Spa.
Join us for an hour or two, or for the full afternoon of presentations and readings!
The 15th Annual Books in Bloom Festival is delighted to be included in the Festival of the Arts schedule, a month-long celebration of the arts, held in Eureka Springs and now in its 31st year.
