The First Annual Yorkville Literary Festival will be held in Downtown York the weekend of October 5-6. The Festival will include author presentations in various business venues on Congress Street, street performers, workshops, and featured speakers. This family friendly event will launch a community wide “Reading Initiative,” designed to encourage families and children to read more. The event is co-sponsored by the City of York. The Engage Team is actively seeking volunteers and business sponsors. Please contact the festival chairperson, Debbie Hammond Lancaster, at email@example.com.
