Fox Cities Book Festival returns


APPLETON - Have you read any good books lately? Its all about reading in the Fox Valley this week.

Monday marked the beginning of the 7th annual Fox Cities Book Festival. The event features dozens of authors, both locally and nationally.

Aside from discussions about books, there will be a chance to take part in hands on activities. Workshops will be given in writing and publishing.

Brian Kopetsky with Community Partnership says the event speaks to writers and readers of every level.

"There's something about being human that ties us directly to stores we've been telling, stories all the way back to caveman drawing on walls stories are apart of our culture and about humanity. So this seems like a great celebration of that aspect of our culture," said Kopetsky.

The festival ends on Sunday.
