Get Lit! strives to bring the Spokane community together through the shared experience of literature. Award-winning author and Eastern alumnus Jess Walter says it best: “I love the Get Lit! Festival. Not just because of the big names who come through, or for the regional authors whose work I get to know at the festival, but because it's a week when much of the city seems engaged by literature, a week that always leaves me thinking: this is exactly where I want to live.”
