Experience the written word in many forms at John Tyler Community College’s 18th Annual Literary Festival, February 19 – 28. This year’s Festival kicks off with special guest Joe Oestreich, an author, songwriter and musician whose memoir, Hitless Wonder: A Life in Minor League Rock and Roll, documents his twenty-plus years in the rock band Watershed. Oestreich’s work has appeared in Sports Illustrated, Esquire, Ninth Letter, Fourth Genre, and in other publications. He is an assistant professor of English and creative writing at Coastal Carolina University. Oestrich will participate in two student writing workshops and a reading and book signing. The Festival also highlights the works of John Tyler Community College’s very own students, and faculty.
