This event is featured in The Current Fall Guide, highlighting both musical and non-musical things to do this summer in the Twin Cities and beyond.

Like many arts organizations, adjusting to pandemic restraints in 2020 equipped Rain Taxi, the Minneapolis-based book review and literary organization, to include an expanded virtual community into its annual gathering of contemporary literature lovers. In addition to in-person activities at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, the 2021 festival will host virtual author conversations in the weeks leading up to the live portion. Readers of all ages can meet with writers and publishers, browse books, and celebrate reading with others after social isolation made an already solitary pursuit even more lonely. And speaking of health and safety, this year's festival will be shaped by health guidelines around crowd flow and occupancy limits. (Lydia Moran)
