2007 Southern Festival of Books
The Southern Festival of Books: A Celebration of the Written WordSM brings readers and writers together for its 19th anniversary October 12–14 at the Legislative Plaza in downtown Nashville, Tennessee.
Southern Festival of Books hours are Friday, October 12 from Noon–6 pm; Saturday, October 13 from 9 am–6 pm and Sunday, October 14 from Noon–5 pm.
The Festival is free and open to the public and welcomes more than 200 authors and more than fifty exhibitors to this year's Southern Festival of Books. To help plan your visit to this year's event, look at the current schedule of sessions.
Book lovers have the opportunity to hear from and meet some of America's foremost writers in fiction, history, mystery, biography, travel, poetry and children's literature. Each author on the program participates in a panel discussion or offers a solo presentation, and each has a book signing immediately following his/her session.
Special events for children are planned including appearances by favorite characters and birthday parties to celebrate the anniversaries of great children's books.
The festival will also feature two performance stages in addition to a Cooking Stage. The Café Stage features exceptional musicians, and the Children's Stage features children's storytellers, writers, performers and musicians. The Cooking Stage will highlight talented chefs preparing and discussing recipes from the latest food and cookbooks.
Over the course of this three-day event we need and welcome approximately 400 volunteers. Please consider sharing your time and talents to help make this Festival a success.
Contributions by individuals pay a large portion of Festival costs. Please consider donating to the event. These donations directly support the Southern Festival of Books and help to keep it free to the public.
If you are traveling to the Festival from out of town, there are hotels in the downtown area that offer discounted rates for Festivalgoers. We also have directions to the Festival site as well as information about parking downtown.
