Woodstock Writers Festival this weekend

The Woodstock Writers Festival is running from Thursday (April 19) through Sunday (April 22) and will feature workshops, slams and readings from writers such as Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist William Kennedy, New York Times best-selling author Augusten Burroughs and literally dozens of talented writers that the organizers have corralled into terrific programs focusing on everything from poetry to memoir to comedy to politics. Other highlights include meals at Oriole 9 where participants have the chance to imbibe and digest with the writers. For more information, visit the listing in our calendar.  -- Andrea Girolamo
