Book Festivals

 

Book Festivals are a wonderful way to hear about a wide range of books and meet a large number of authors. These events take place across the country throughout the year. Our goal here is to present as comprehensive a list as possible about these events.

Any festivals you don’t see on this list? Let us know! Email Tom@bookreporter.com with the name of the festival, its dates and location, and a link to its official website.
