About the Sterling North Book and Film Festival
Year by year, we are continuing to transform the reputation of our little town --we want to be thought of as a literary capitol and Wisconsin's "book town". Each year we honor the famed "Rascal" author Sterling North (Edgerton High class of '25) and celebrate the eternal significance of the written word. The world is opened up to children of all ages through books. Families are encouraged to bring their children so they, too, can learn to love the power of words.
