Kentucky Women’s Book Festival brings together readers, writers


    LOUISVILLE, Ky. — It just might be the ultimate book club meeting when readers and writers convene for the 6th Annual Kentucky Women’s Book Festival at the University of Louisville.

    Author presentations and workshops, book sales and signings and a keynote luncheon will give participants a chance to connect over their favorite pastime: reading and talking about books, Saturday, May 19, at Ekstrom Library. Doors will open at 9 a.m. and the festival officially begins at 9:30 a.m. with refreshments and socializing.

    Tori Murden McClure will address participants at the 10 a.m. opening session. The Spalding University president wrote “A Pearl in the Storm: How I Found My Heart in the Middle of the Ocean,” about her quest to become the first woman to row a boat alone and without assistance across the Atlantic Ocean.
