From kids' books to hard hitting political topics, there's a book for every type of reader. Which is great, but what's even better is meeting the authors behind the books. Asheville Bookfest, held Saturday, Oct. 22 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., offers just that opportunity. The festival takes place on the lawn at the top of Park Square Park, with a children's tent and featured authors such as poet/writer Thomas Rain Crowe, photographer/memoirist Simone Lipscomb and painter/non-fiction writer Blanca Mesias Miller. Free. http://ashevillebookfest.com.
