three on threeThree on Three, Arkansas Literary Festival’s fast-paced sneak peek at a trio of authors on the 2013 Festival roster, tips off at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 7, in the Main Library’s Darragh Center.

Arkansas authors Kevin Brockmeier (The Illumination), Nickole Brown (Sister), and Festival Chair Jay Jennings (Escape Velocity: A Charles Portis Miscellany), offer insight into the work of authors Ben Fountain, Frank X. Walker, and Karen Russell.

If you like pro football, poetry, or the supernatural, or if you’re interested in social justice, the Iraq War, or alligators in the Everglades, Three on Three has you covered.

Fountain, Walker, and Russell will appear at the 2013 Festival, April 18-21, along with additional best-selling and emerging authors from across the country.

The tenth annual Arkansas Literary Festival, the premier gathering of readers and writers in Arkansas, will include more than 80 presenters in locations on both sides of the river from April 18-21, 2013. The Central Arkansas Library System’s Main Library campus and other venues in the River Market and Argenta Arts districts are the sites for a stimulating mix of sessions, panels, special events, performances, workshops, presentations, opportunities to meet authors, book sales, and book signings. Most events are free and open to the public.
