On Friday, the KY Writers Conference returned to South Campus. The conference offered a variety of sessions from published authors, including Jack Riggs, Janna McMahan (both personal favorites), and Logan County native Holly Goddard Jones.
The SOKY Book Fest attracted over 130 authors to the Carroll Knicely Center, a new location for this year’s event, on Saturday the 17th. Some of the guests this year included Richard Paul Evans, Fireproof author Eric Wilson, the Cake Mix Doctor, Anne Byrn and local favorite Silas House. There were also Children and YA authors including Laura Numeroff, Mark Teague and Michael Reisman. Books were available for signing and purchase; author presentations, panel sessions, and activities for children occurred throughout the day. On the eve of the Book Fest, authors and members of the WKU and local communities met in the Kentucky Building.
