Oct 09 - 10 2021
Southern Festival of Books

Each year the Festival features approximately 200 of the nation’s and region’s most prominent authors, from legendary mystery writers to critically acclaimed debut novelists, from poets to biographers, from chefs to children’s authors.

The 33rd Annual Southern Festival of Books: A Celebration of the Written Word℠ will Feature Virtual and In-Person Programming.

Humanities Tennessee’s Southern Festival of Books: A Celebration of the Written Wordsm was first held in Nashville on the second full weekend (Friday-Sunday) in October, 1989, and has been held annually on the same weekend since then. One of the first book festivals of its kind, it has inspired hundreds of similar book festivals throughout the nation and beyond.

Due to the pandemic the 2021 Southern Festival of Books Nashville will take place online. 

The festival and its programming will be free for all attendees, as part of Humanities Tennessee’s commitment to foster community and civility through stories, history, arts, and culture throughout the state.
