The annual Veterans Day celebration begins at 8:00 am at Milton City Hall with a free breakfast for all veterans in the community. While enjoying a sausage biscuit, sweet rolls, coffee and juice, veterans will hear from retired Brigadier General A. J. (“Tony”) Tata. General Tata served some 28 years in the United States Army and regularly appears on many of the national news networks commenting on national security matters. In keeping with the literary theme of the day, General Tata is also the author of several novels including Foreign and Domestic and Three Minutes to Midnight.
Beginning at 10:00 am, the third annual Milton Literary Festival kicks off into high gear as more than 40 best-selling authors participate in 12 various panels and workshops. Sessions currently on tap include historical fiction, veterans as authors, mystery/suspense, women’s fiction, new author introductions and publishing tips. Several New York Times best-selling authors will participate including Bret Witter, Mary Kay Andrews, Karen White and Beatriz Williams.
After the main event at City Hall, the festival will conclude with a Literature Live Cabaret at the Olde Blind Dog. You won’t want to miss this special session where participating authors bring their characters to life as the audience enjoys their favorite beverage.
Finally, the festival will again feature the very popular Milton Book Trail. This mulch laden trail, built by members and volunteers from the Milton Literary Group, is located behind the Milton Library. While walking through the trail, kids and adults alike will enjoy reading pages out of a very popular children’s book selected for this year’s event. As information, the trail is open year-round.
