In Print Festival

The annual In Print Festival of First Books includes readings, discussions, and classroom visits with authors who have recently published their first books. The two-day event typically features three emerging authors and an editor or publisher.

The In Print Festival also marks the release of The Broken Plate, which features pieces by the guest authors as well as interviews with them conducted by The Broken Plate staff.
