Buying and shopping for books

During the festival, the Exhibit Hall will be packed with Exhibitors representing the very best of local, regional, and national book dealers, antiquarians, publishers, independent presses, writer’s collectives, educational groups, individual writers, and non-profit organizations. Book lovers’ treats can be found everywhere, from your favorite author’s new book to that special and rare literary find. You may even find yourself inspired by local writers, non-profits, and publishers present who are always willing to engage book festival participants. You can literally shop until you drop!

“The best festival I exhibit at—hands down. Great environment and amenities plus a very strong author program.”
