Since its founding in 2009, BookFest has been an important community event that celebrates something many of us take for granted – the book!

BookFest has something for casual readers as well as diehard fans of genre fiction, mystery, romance, science fiction, fantasy, comics, graphic novels, children’s fiction, and more. The 2020 edition of BookFest will take place on Saturday, July 11,  from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in a large tent in the parking lot of Schlow Centre Region Library.

At BookFest, authors and artists have the opportunity to meet their fans and to sign and sell books. Publishers, booksellers, and related vendors may exhibit and sell as well.

Applicants must live in Pennsylvania or one of the surrounding states.

The application deadline was March 1, 2020.

All exhibitors are chosen by the staff of Schlow Centre Region Library. Acceptances will be sent to those chosen to participate on March 20, 2020.
