CARBONDALE, Ill. — The Devil’s Kitchen Literary Festival is back at Southern Illinois University Carbondale, with a full schedule of readings and panels scheduled for Oct. 24-26.
The festival features winners of the 2018 Devil’s Kitchen Reading Awards, which are selected based on books published the previous year. The event is hosted by the editorial staff of “Grassroots,” the annual undergraduate literary and arts journal for SIU students.
With over 400 applicants to sort through, the students worked with advisors to narrow the list down to select winners. All Reading Award winners participate in the festival and receive a cash award.
