"THE WISCONSIN BOOK FESTIVAL

The Wisconsin Book Festival is a free, five-day program of public events that takes place every October in downtown Madison. It is the state's largest literary festival, drawing thousands of attendees annually.

Since its inception in 2002, the Wisconsin Book Festival has been a showcase for literary talent from across the state of Wisconsin and beyond. It is a forum for people to come together and sit face to face and side by side, to talk and listen, whisper, laugh, cry, sing, sign, write notes, tell jokes, and give voice to their ideas. The Wisconsin Book Festival is a special project of the Wisconsin Humanities Council, an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit, and works to fulfill the WHC’s mission: Community through Conversation.

We proudly host authors of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction for readers of all ages; in addition we stage plays, offer hands-on workshops, feature spoken word performances, and more. Our authors have included such well-known names as Grace Paley, Tim O’Brien, Edwidge Danticat, Isabel Allende, Michael Chabon, TC Boyle, Judy Blume, Wendell Berry, Michael Perry, Lorrie Moore, Lynda Barry and Harvey Pekar."

What better excuse to visit Madison, one of the midwest's most interesting towns, in the fall than this? Combine it with a Saturday trip to the large and interesting Dane County Farmer's Market also in Madison and your mind and your tummy both will be well fed:

Yes, I know that Madison is not a Chicago suburb. Passports are not required for folks from Illinois.
