Festival of Authors

Literary Sojourn is an annual festival of authors and readers celebrating the power of the book. Each fall, an esteemed slate of authors and 500 book lovers from all over the country gather in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Together they revel in the written word, fueled by award-winning writers who share the stories and inspiration behind their exceptional books.

Thank you to our 2016 authors for a spectacular Literary Sojourn.

“Of all the events I have taken part in, Literary Sojourn remains a highlight - fantastically organised, with care and consideration. I was honoured to share the stage with such varied and interesting authors and to hear their stories as well as sharing mine. The readers at Literary Sojourn are a welcoming, intelligent and friendly bunch, and I was very lucky to spend my time in their company in the breathtaking setting that is Steamboat Springs. A magical weekend.”
