CT Lit Fest
The CT Lit Fest is a fall book festival presented by Real Art Ways. A literary carnival under one roof in the center of Connecticut. A day for writers, teachers, students, and readers to mingle and discover new voices. The Fest takes over the galleries of RAW for readings, talks, performances, and an interactive typewriter installation. The main gallery hosts a bookfair to showcase publishers, journals, writing programs, and arts organizations.
