Cultural and Literary Events for March 2014

How are you celebrating special observances in March? Have fun, write about them, and let us know.

Not all cultural and literary events are declared official by government agencies. Some are by passionate nonprofit groups whose members want to have fun with their topics or get the word out about their important work.

Check with your library, college, government agencies, or community groups for activities in your area.

Mirth Month International - Created by author, keynote speaker, and jollytologist Allen Klein.
