2009 Westview Writer's Festival

Area residents who are interested in the world of steam locomotives or love an exciting story with compelling characters or are a fan of historically accurate fiction will want to attend the upcoming Westview Writers' Festival this Tuesday, March 31, at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

Novelist Howard Bahr will read from his recent novel Pelican Road and from one of his acclaimed Civil War novels at the festival that starts at 7 p.m. in the SWOSU Conference Center, located the corner of Davis and Seventh Streets on the SWOSU campus. Admission is free.

Following Bahr's reading, there will be an open reading with cash prizes for the three prose works judged to be of the highest overall quality. The top prize will be $100, and two honorable mention prizes of $25 will also be awarded. The reading will be open to students, members of the community and faculty (other than Language and Literature faculty).
