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 is free, and includes performance stages, food trucks, and loads of publishers and booksellers. After two years of virtual programming, we look forward to seeing you on The Plaza.
