Lit lovers will find a plethora of penmen and -women of every variety at Bookstock Literary Festival. The three-day festival draws prominent authors from instate and out; this year notables include poet Richard Blanco (pictured), Sean Prentiss and Vermont’s poet laureate Chard deNiord. More than 60 other writers join in, reading from their work throughout the weekend. And that’s not all — numerous workshops in the craft of writing help attendees sharpen their prose, while two massive book sales will keep their shelves stocked well into next summer. Check out fine vintage books at the Norman Williams Public library, or used books at the fair organized by the North Universalist Chapel Society. Put on your reading glasses and start a new story this weekend.
