Raggant Fiction Festival

March 21, 2020

The 5th Annual Raggant Fiction Festival will be based around J.R.R. Tolkien’s works of fiction. A host of ECS Faculty will be joined by keynote speaker C.R. Wiley, author of The Purloined Boy, The Household and the War For the Cosmos, and Man of the House. (Rumor has it he is currently working on a book on Tom Bombadil).

Besides writing for magazines and publishing books, he has been a pastor (still is!), a college professor, a commercial real estate investor, a landlord (still that, too!), and a building contractor. He has been happily married for over 30 years and he has three grown children. He resides in rural Connecticut.

Regular tickets gain you admission to all the sessions, a delicious lunch, entry into our door-prize drawing, and more!

We will also have a Children’s Track available, filled with games, crafts, and stories for youth aged 3-10.
