Part of the art center’s month-long celebration of the written word, the Hood River Words Fair brings a weekend of free author talks, author book signings, storytelling for adults and children with professional storyteller Will Hornyak, and reading to kids by the Hood River Library.

“Because the gallery is featuring an exhibition with visual artists creating pieces depicting literary works, we wanted to add more literary elements to our month-long celebration with a lit fair,” said Kristyn Fix, events manager for the center. “We’ll have a full roster of events over the weekend, and folks are invited to drop in and participate in any way they like.”
