The Ridges & Rivers Book Festival is a partnership of two Viroqua organizations working together with the community to bring a dream to life.
The Driftless Writing Center and the McIntosh Memorial Library teamed up to celebrate the literary arts by engaging authors from around the world and finding support from businesses just down the street.

The Driftless Writing Center is a volunteer-led nonprofit organization based in Viroqua, WI, that provides literary and educational opportunities, readings and discussions, writing classes and workshops, and an outlet for the presentation of original writing by area writers.
Anyone who supports the literary arts can participate, and we operate in a spirit of cooperation and recognize that each individual’s contribution is valuable. We endeavor to create a supportive and noncompetitive environment while celebrating excellence in writing.
