What an amazing weekend! The readings, the talks, the panels, the performances... and then there was Salman Rushdie.
Thank you to absolutely everyone who came to Chapter Two of the Unbound Book Festival. It was all we could have hoped for, and more. We'll be posting many more pictures in due course, but for now here's a good one of the crowd in Jesse Auditorium taken by our photographer-in-chief, Shane Epping, a few minutes before Salman Rushdie was due to take the stage.
We'd like to thank all the authors and poets who came from across the country to Columbia for the weekend, for their brilliance and wit and generosity; the staff of Jesse Hall and Stephens College who welcomed us with such warmth and professionalism; and, of course our incredible team of volunteers who gave up their weekend to make sure things went smoothly.
Also, may we ask you a favor?
If you attended Unbound this year, we'd be very grateful if you would take about 45 seconds to complete our online questionnaire, which you can find by clicking here. Please give us your feedback and thoughts. It will help us as we start to plan for 2018 (there's no rest for the wicked, you know.) We're still learning about a lot about what works and what doesn't, and we would appreciate your input.
Many thanks! And mark your calendars for April 20 and 21, 2018!
