To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Spokane, Washington's literary festival GetLit!, Willow Springs Books and GetLit! Programs published the GetLit! 20th Anniversary Anthology.

"Get Lit! is much more than a big-name reading series. In fact, the bold names might be the least interesting part of the story. The festival has been a part of a burgeoning artistic spirit in Spokane, a creative ethos of Why-Not-Here that has celebrated and nurtured local writers over the last twenty years until you can't throw a journal in a coffee shop without hitting a working writer . . . But turn to the table of contents of this anthology of twenty years of GetLit! and you'll see a few of those names, and get an idea for the magic of the festival -- great national writers who have made Spokane their home, award-winning story writers and notable novelists and poets and essayists and memoirists from around the region and around the country, all coming together to celebrate the written word."
