WELCOME!

The Southern Festival of Books: A Celebration of the Written Word is among the oldest literary festivals in the country, annually welcoming hundreds of authors and thousands of visitors to downtown Nashville each October.
 
The Festival, a program of Humanities Tennessee, is free and includes performance stages, food trucks, and loads of publishers and booksellers.

The initial author lineup will be revealed in July!


Stay up to date and subscribe to SFB emails. We also post updates here and here.

We look forward to celebrating the written word with you this Fall downtown at the Bicentennial Mall, Tennessee State Museum, and Tennessee State Library.
