The Arkansas Literary Festival announced its 2012 lineup today.

Among the more than 90 participating authors are familiar names like Roy Blount Jr., David Margolick, Ian Frazier and Greil Marcus, as well as locals Kevin Brockmeier, Mara Leveritt and Ernest Dumas, up-and-comer (and fourth sexiest man of 2011, according to Salon) Justin Torres, food writers Diana Southwood Kennedy, John T. Edge and Roland Mesnier, Heidi Julavits (novelist and co-founding editor of "The Believer"), cartoonists Barbara Slate and David Rees and many, many more poets, critics, essayists, humorists, sports writers, journalists and assorted other scribes.

In addition to the author talks and panel discussions and workshops and whatnot, there will be a cocktail reception with the authors, a book fiesta for kiddos, cooking workshops, films and a street fair with musicians, including The Salty Dogs and Montgomery Trucking.

The festival is April 12-15, and most events are free and open to the public.
