24th Annual SoKY Book Fest

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.-The 24th annual SoKY Book Fest is right around the corner! 

The Book Fest, presented by Barnes and Noble and the Warren County Public Library, is one of the biggest literary events in Kentucky. 

Children’s Day is tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the Book Fest is Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Knicely Conference Center. Both events are open and free to the public. 

Every year, the event draws thousands of readers together in the community for the chance to meet their favorite authors and get their hands on new books. 

“They’ll get to meet those people when they’re signing their books. The children’s authors in particular are really great about interacting with their fans. Children who have a particular author that they love are really big fans and really excited to meet those people,” said WCPL Director Lisa Rice. 

Some of the authors that will be there this weekend include Will Wheaton, David Bell and Lauren Thoman.
