Pygmalion Literary Festival
In September, the first-annual Pygmalion Literary Festival was held in conjunction with The Pygmalion Music Fest, now in its ninth year, at University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana. This festival aimed to celebrate Midwestern authors, and hosted readings by authors such as Roxane Gay, Amelia Gray, Dan Chaon, Kyle Minor and Matt Bell. Best of all, it was free to the public.
