Among the collection of speakers are New York Times bestselling authors, a Pulitzer Prize finalist and four speakers whose work has been turned into major motion pictures. The festival will encompass fiction, nonfiction and journalism writing. And speakers will host lectures, take questions from the audience and attend book signings.  

This year’s keynote speaker, Mitch Albom, is author of the number one selling memoir of all time, Tuesdays with Morrie.
