High school students have been invited to take part in a special writing workshop designed specifically for them. This workshop will be led by Yakama author Carol Craig. As a writer, photographer and public speaker, Carol’s passion is to educate tribal members and the public about her people’s efforts to restore salmon runs.

 The Yakama Authors Festival will be held in the Arts and Sciences building at Heritage University’s main campus in Toppenish, with author presentations beginning at 10:00 a.m. The author presentations are open to the public.
