The Ohio University English Department plans to hold 2022 Spring Literary Festival on the Athens campus on April 6 and 7.

“It’s so nice to be back in person for this flagship event,” said Dr. David Wanczyk of the English Department. “We’ve invited guests who are both renowned writers and excellent communicators, and we’re excited for this to be a celebration for fans of their work and a learning experience for our students.”

Authors scheduled to attend include Kim Addonizio, Lauren Groff, and Ira Sukrungruang.

Wanczyk also thanked the artist C. David Russell, whose image “Bramble Puppet” appears on the Spring Literary Festival posters.
