Wisconsin Book Festival
We are incredibly proud to announce Madison Public Library's Wisconsin Book Festival presented by Madison Community Foundation and hosted by the Madison Public Library Foundation. We couldn't be more excited to share our love of books, reading, and literacy with Madison in this new way.
The 2013 Wisconsin Book Festival will take place from Thursday, October 17 through Sunday, October 20, 2013. This year's festival will be made up of approximately 50 author events occurring in and around the new Central Branch of Madison Public Library.
After 11 successful years, Madison Public Library is taking over as organizer of the Wisconsin Book Festival from the Wisconsin Humanities Council. The 2013 festival will incorporate literature, spoken word, art, and performance. We will feature local literary talents alongside national voices to create a unique event full of free community programs in keeping with our library's mission to learn, share and create. Festival activities will be hosted at library facilities, particularly the new Central Library, and select other venues. With an anticipated audience of 10,000 people, the Library and Foundation, along with a growing list of collaborative partners, are poised for the next chapter.
As ownership of the Wisconsin Book Festival transitions to the library from the Wisconsin Humanities Council, there will be many announcements. Sign up to learn more and receive news and announcements of upcoming events.
