24th Annual Aspen Winter Words
Continuing their legacy of encouraging writers, inspiring readers, and connecting through stories, Aspen Writers' Foundation presents a virtual edition of Aspen Winter Words.
The 24th annual Winter Words series brings six top authors and poets (virtually) to Aspen during the winter season to engage the literary community with in-depth discussions, fresh ideas, and new perspectives.
From nonfiction that examines some of America's most urgent social issues to fiction that reimagines the life of a famous U.S. politician to poetry that contemplates the wonders of being alive, this season promises to inspire readers and provide new insights into our time.
The virtual events will be held from November through March. Tickets are $10 for individual tickets. Series passes for 2020-21 are $275.
