SUBDUCTION author Kristen Millares Young will speak on a panel at Orcas Island Lit Fest!

Saturday brings the main event: The festival’s featured authors will take to the stage for readings of their work and panel discussions like “Women Who Confound Expectations,” wherein Sonora Jha, Kristen Millares Young, Laura Read, and Alexandra Teague will discuss the shaping pressure that is exerted upon literature by the patriarchy. A book fair highlighting small presses and literary journals will also run Saturday afternoon.
