The Wisconsin Book Festival wraps up Sunday with a historical bike ride and a conversation with Madison's poets laureate among the featured events.
Here's a look at some of the happenings:
• At 10 a.m., authors Jesse Gant and Nicholas Hoffman discuss their new book, "Wheel Fever," and then lead a historical bike ride through downtown Madison. The event starts and ends at the corner of Mifflin and Henry streets outside the Madison Central Library.
• At 11 a.m., Dan Chaon and Lynda Barry lead a workshop called Writing the Unthinkable, offering insight into the writing process for those who have had a hard time figuring out how to do it.
• At 11:30 a.m., Jennifer Angus reads and shows illustrations from "In Search of Golianthus Hercules." Her debut novel, set in 1890 England, follows a 10-year-old boy who discovers that he not only can communicate with insects, he's one of them.
• Also at 11:30 a.m., Madison poets laureate Sarah Busse and Wendy Vardaman lead a conversation about what it means to be a public poet. Wisconsin poet laureate Max Garland is among those joining the discussion.
• And at 2:30, the event wraps up with author Allen Salkin talking about his book "From Scratch: Inside the Food Network." Salkin, a former food and media reporter for the New York Times, gets into the drama inside the popular food shows.
