See myacpl.org starting in early September for the full festival schedule.

Supported by the Friends of the Athens Public Library and the Athens County Convention and Visitors Bureau.

“Steampunk” refers to a literary genre and a growing cultural movement that draws much of its inspiration from Victorian-era, industrial steam-powered technology and the power of human imagination.
