This April, the Free Library of Philadelphia is taking our annual Philadelphia Book Festival on the road, with special author events happening at all of our 54 locations throughout the city! Previously held only at the Parkway Central Library, the seventh annual Book Festival will now give you the chance to enjoy incredible author events at the neighborhood library you call home.
Taking place during National Library Week--April 14-20, 2013--the Festival will feature headlining author events at Parkway Central every day, as well as special author appearances in every neighborhood library throughout the week. Authors appearing as part of the 2013 Philadelphia Book Festival include Rachel Maddow, Baratunde Thurson, Cheryl Strayed, Solomon Jones, and the Free Library's own Mônica Carnesi. Events are being added all the time, so keep checking the Festival calendar to find an event near you!
