The Vegas Valley Book Festival returns Downtown October 15, with all the literary flourishes that make it popular with Vegas’ constant readers. This year, however, the festival adds free nighttime readings, presented by Nevada Humanities, Black Mountain Institute and the Writer’s Block book shop. Joanne Kyger, Katherine Boo, Geoff Dyer and more will appear at Inspire on October 14 and 15, accompanied by a full bar. “By showcasing the authors in an intimate venue, audiences will get to enjoy all the variety of a book festival in one curated, focused experience,” says Writer’s Block co-owner Scott Seeley.
