Northern Arizona Book Festival!

This is Cassie, the Eggtern, speaking! I had a wonderful time at the Northern Arizona Book Festival last weekend. Firecreek Coffee Company and several other locales hosted several speakers including our 2017/2018 winner Katie Quinnelly! Our own creative nonfiction editor Lawrence Lenhart also helped organized the event. What a great way to support local talent here in Flagstaff!

The 2019/2020 Eggtooth Editions contest has now begun.
