Wendy Jett to Participate in the Kentucky Book Festival with “Girl”

August 24, 2023




What will Kentucky Book Festival visitors find on your table?

Girl: short story, poetry, song and recipes tell the story of a young girl as she navigates themes of self worth, identity, trauma and resilience



Whom do you invite to stop by? Who will benefit from reading your book?

Readers who enjoy strong voice in storytelling, and powerful female role models

Could you please tell us something curious about you and/or your book?

Girl followed me around, speaking to me in the quiet moments until I finally gave in and wrote her story.

Is this your first time participating in Kentucky Book Festival? If yes – what are you looking forward to the most? If you’ve participated before – what was your favorite experience at the Festival?

I am looking forward to networking with and supporting other Kentucky writers.
