The Get Lit! festival’s 20th year hits a fever pitch this weekend with a slew of high-profile events all over the city. Thursday night is the can’t-miss-it Pie & Whiskey reading at the Washington Cracker Co. Building, featuring a slew of writers regaling the crowd with tales of, yes, pie and whiskey, while the audience enjoys (correct again!) pie and whiskey. Friday at the Bing, catch novelist Brit Bennett and poet Maggie Smith, while Saturday features a huge array of panel discussions, readings and classes at the Montvale Event Center. Anne Lamott headlines a reading and Q&A Saturday night at the Bing as well. There’s much more than can be listed here — see the full schedule at getlitfestival.org.
