Meet Your Favorite Authors

The Savannah Book Festival is an excellent opportunity to meet your favorite authors and hang out with like-minded book fans from all over the world! Now in it’s 11th year, the Savannah Book Festival is featuring over 40 authors. On Festival Saturday, which is free to the public, you can meet the authors,  purchase their books, and even get your copy signed! Festival Saturday 2018 will be in downtown Savannah’s beautiful Chippewa Square, Telfar Square, and Wright Square starting at 9:00am on February 17th. See the schedule here.

This year’s Savannah Book Festival takes place the weekend after Valentine’s Day (don’t forget: Wednesday Feb 14th!), and would be a fun thing to do with your book-loving Valentine.
