For the fourth year, world-class authors and local literati host intensive workshops, readings, talks, panels, and parties from April 18 to 21 at venues around Woodstock. The weekend opens with a "50 Shades of Tie-Dye"-themed Rock 'n' Roll story slam, and continues throughout the weekend, with highlights that include a Q&A and lesson in tying knots with Philippe Petit, the French high-wire artist of Man on Wire who is touring his new book, Why Knot?; a dialogue between WAMC's Joe Donahue and New York Times-bestseller Cheryl Strayed, whose memoir, Wild, is being made into a screenplay, written by Nick Hornby and starring Reese Witherspoon; and "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way to Woodstock," a night of comedy with acclaimed late-night television writers including Bill Scheft of the "Late Show with David Letterman," Jess Dweck of "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," and Meredith Scardino of "The Colbert Report," moderated by J. R. Havlan from "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart." Woodstockwritersfestival.com.
