The Hudson Valley has been an inspiration for generations of writers, from James Fenimore Cooper and Washington Irving to Carol Goodman and Kate Christensen. The second annual Read Local! Red Hook Literary Festival, a three-day event celebrating local arts and literature, carries on the tradition by showcasing the region's talent. From April 12 to 14, Hudson Valley-based writers and artists will gather at locations throughout Red Hook for readings, panels, workshops, and presentations, including a special reading on Saturday, "Stories on Stage: Hudson Valley Actors Read Hudson Valley Authors," which features Oscar-nominated actor David Strathairn, "Breaking Bad"'s Giancarlo Esposito, and Racing Daylight's Nicole Quinn reading short stories by John Sayles, T. C. Boyle, and Abigail Thomas. A full day of author panels, workshops, and book-signings will be held on Sunday, including programs for kids ("I Want to Be in a Band!"—a music and movement program featuring author and musician Suzzy Roche and illustrator Giselle Potter), discussions on process and the industry, and conversations with fiction writers, including Owen King (Double Feature) and Marshall Karp (NYPD Red). (845) 758-6575; Rhcan.com.
