What is Generational?

In the Washington Island Literary Festival’s seventh season, we’ll explore:

  • The generation of the new from the old

  • The transitions, natural and unnatural, easy and onerous, between generations

  • What it takes to generate: to move, to grow, to evolve, to change


“Quality authors with opportunity to freely interact and learn from them. Beautiful settings enhance the entire experience.” –Ruth Gunnerson
