The Southern Kentucky Book Fest is one of the state's largest literary events and is presented by WKU Libraries, Warren County Public Library, and Barnes and Noble Booksellers. Held annually during National Library Week, the Book Fest draws thousands of readers of all ages who welcome the occasion to meet their favorite authors and purchase signed copies of their books. The 2011 SOKY Book Fest will be our 13th and is a fundraiser for the promotion of literacy in our community. This year Book Fest is on Saturday, April 16 and is from 9 am to 4 pm. Children's Day is on Friday, April 15 from 9 am to 2 pm. Please note that all books signed at SOKY Book Fest must be purchased at the festival. No previously purchased books are allowed to be signed.
