“I really enjoyed my experience as a volunteer at last year’s Festival. As a recent retiree and avid reader, it was amazing to be a part of a community that celebrates the love for literature. It is a joy to be able to share my passion for books with others and meet some truly amazing authors, both of which I hope to continue doing by volunteering in this year’s Festival.”
(Sue, first year volunteer)
