Love to Read? Don’t Miss BookFest!

BookFestPA celebrates the story as art. Diehard fans of mystery, romance, science fiction, fantasy, comics, children’s fiction & poetry, and more will gather on Saturday, July 15. Meet authors and artists who work for large publishing houses, as well as independents who forge their own path.

Stop by the authors’ tents to meet returning favorites as well as authors visiting for the first time! Pick up books for children, young adults, and adults. Stay tuned for a full list of authors and events, including a used book sale, and a virtual visit with New York Times bestselling comic book author and novelist, Charles Soule.

BookFestPA will take place from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on the grounds of Schlow Centre Region Library.

BookFestPA 2023 is sponsored by the Schlow Library Foundation, Setsucon, with thanks to artist Jason Lenox.
