This year we’re ending the festival on an extra sweet note! This event features festival authors reading original poetry and prose inspired by ice-cream flavors from our favorite local ice-cream shop, The Scoop. These inspired pieces were published in the second installment of our Tiny Book Series, created by The Spokane Print and Publishing Center. Tiny Books will be available for sale, and you will have a chance to taste all of the delicious ice-cream flavors, as The Scoop will be selling all inspired flavors on-site. We would like to thank The Scoop for partnering with us on this event, and for providing our authors with inspiration pints!

In order to attend this event, you must purchase a
Weekend Pass. One pass ($15 + fees) covers entry into ALL events on Saturday and Sunday at The Montvale Event Center. There will be metered parking or paid downtown lots. Make sure to join our mailing list for future festival announcements.
