The Kentucky Book Fair is the state’s premier literary event. This year’s book fair will be on Saturday, Nov. 14, at the Frankfort Convention Center, Frankfort, Ky. (The main book fair is preceded by the Fourth Annual Children’s Day, held the day before at the same location.)
Each year, more than 150 authors attend the fair, prepared to sign their latest books and meet their readers. The fair draws approximately 4,000 visitors from Kentucky and surrounding states.
The Kentucky Book Fair strives to include writers of all genres from a mix of national, regional and state writers. Confirmed authors this year include James Archambeault, David Bell, Wendell Berry, Sallie Bingham, Kathleen Driskell, George Ella Lyon, Bobby Ann Mason, Sharyn McCrumb, Kim Michele Richardson, Virginia Smith, James Alexander Thom, and many others.
Make a fun day of it by carpooling, enjoying the drive to Frankfort, wandering through the book fair, and having lunch together. What a great way to get to know other WWW members and the region’s many great writers.
