This was Glendale’s first annual literary festival, and we were proud to be a planning partner with Glendale Arts, Writ Large Press, Abril Bookstore, Museum of Neon Art, and the Glendale Transportation Center.

These were great programs featuring strong local voices, and promoting creativity and literary expression in our community. Help us support programming like this: Join the Friends!
