This is one of my all time favorite events and I personally encourage all lovers of literature to attend!
Two years ago, Paris Writers News had the excellent fortune to benefit from the talents of film-maker Amanda Walsh, and together we set out to interview a cross-section of book-lovers, organizers, translators, writers, booksellers, moderators and volunteers we discovered in the 2010 Edition of Festival America.
The weather was glorious, the authors inspiring.
I hope you enjoy these interviews, filmed and edited by Amanda Walsh at the last Festival America two years ago. This year promises, if possible, to be even more exciting!
