Fall for the Book invites you to "Revel in Reading" at its 11^th annual 
festival. Once more Fall for the Book is helping to build the community, 
increase literary awareness, promote cultural diversity and make 
literature fun.

Festival events will be held in various areas and at multiple times on 
campus; a short distance from your dorms, offices, classrooms and 
meeting places - so there's no excuse not to be there! The diversity of 
topics and authors attending the festival offers something for all ages, 
backgrounds, cultures and interests.

Fall for the Book runs Monday, September 21 through Saturday, September 
26, welcoming writers from across the United States and around the 
world. Come meet your favorites! History events will take readers on a 
trip to the past with topics that include the Civil War, Presidents from 
Lincoln to Truman to Reagan, the Fall of the Berlin Wall, and along many 
more historical stops from our past.
