Literary Events with Dylan Days

One of the cool things Aaron Brown and the folks with Dylan Days do every year is an acknowledgement of Bob Dylan's talent in terms of writing.

Each year they sponsor a writing contest - adults and students - both fiction and poetry.... and this year their first ever One-Act Play contest.

This year's literary speaker is Toby Thompson, he's author of "Positively Main Street: Bob Dylan's Minnesota". Toby will be hosting a Creative Writing Workshop on Friday May 23rd from 9-11am at the Hibbing High School. Pre-registration is necessary for this, email for more information. This is free with a 2008 Dylan Days pin. From 3-5 that afternoon Toby will be at the Howard Street Booksellers signing copies of his book...
Saturday May 24th from 3-5pm at the Hibbing Community College theater will be a reading of the winners of the Dylan Days writing contest as well as the premiere of the winner of the One-Act Play contest, directed by award-winning director Mike Ricci. This is free also with a Dylan Days pin.
There are lots more events going on with Dylan Days - check it out!
