The line-up of authors, speakers and literary figures at this weekend's festival runs deep and wide, stacking up Scott Turon, Ridley Pearson, Jeff Greenfield, Michael Krasny, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, Dave Barry, Peggy Noonan, Frank Delaney...and this could go on for a while, but you get it. And just as the stars are pretty and awesome to contemplate from afar, the ticket price may put these lit stars just as out of reach, though apparently there is some negotiation in the price point if you should contact the festival organizer, and school kids from the county are invited to attend a couple of events for free, as one can bear witness to on the website, featuring a photo of said kids.
