Lit Loving 

Every few months or so, some study comes along to inform everyone that reading is dead, that no one has ever made it all the way through Great Expectations, and that society is doomed to have illiterate children who will sigh in exhaustion after skimming Wikipedia articles. And, sure, maybe there's cause for concern. But events such as the MCC-Longview Literary Festival provide evidence that there's still life in literature. The second year of the fledgling event brings more than 25 guest authors, publishers and groups to the Longview campus for a weekend of readings, presentations, open-mic sessions and, of course, panel discussions (among the topics: "How Not to Get Published" and "The Poetic Life"). The MCC-Longview Literary Festival is today and Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the Mel Aytes Education Center at MCC-Longview (500 Southwest Longview Road). E-mail susan.satterfield@mcckc.edu or call 816-456-3156 for more information.
Fri., Oct. 2, 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sat., Oct. 3, 10 a.m.-7 p.m., 2009
