Woodstock Writers' Festival starts tonight

The literati descend on Woodstock this weekend for four days of workshopping, schmoozing, wining and dining. The guest list this year includes Shalom Auslander, Susan Orlean and Ruth Reichl. (If you want to get Reichl to dish about the tragic demise of Gourmet over a glass of Malbec, now's your chance.)

Orlean kicks it off tonight with a meet-and-greet at the Kleinert Arts Center. The full schedule, and tickets for individual events, can be found here.
