Welcome to the Local LIT                                                                             Calendar of Literary Events                  The Local LIT Calendar of Literary Events ceased publication in 2018. The resource pages of Philadelphia authors, bookstores, etc. are still available but are not being updated. See menu top right. Authors be sure to check out the “Resources for Authors” link. The links below will help you find literary events posted by other literary operations. The tweets at right are current.

NOTE: This page will not be updated after September 2018 as the editor has moved to the West Coast. Apologies for any links that no longer work. Gratitude to everyone who used Local LIT during its 16 years and for the friendships made over that time. They will endure. — Kathye
