Listen up, book lovers! The Las Vegas Book Festival is an annual event that is now in its 17th year. Every year the festival proves itself to be a haven for both readers and writers alike and you don't want to miss it.
This year the festival will take place on October 20, 2018. It describes itself as "a celebration of the written, spoken, and illustrated word", and frankly, we couldn't put it better ourselves. The festival is the largest literary event in Nevada and attracts more than 20,000 attendees every year.
The festival is completely free and open to the public. Since the first festival took place in 2002, the event has put a spotlight on more than 800 authors and speakers and produced over 500 events, including readings, workshops, and book signings.
The festival is comprised of a variety of panels and presentations, and there's sure to be a little bit of something for everyone. Pretty much every genre you can think of will be included such as children's, young adult, fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and more.
Every year, the festival features a few keynote speakers. Writers of all backgrounds have been asked to speak in the past. This year the festival will host notable writers such as Colson Whitehead, Luis J. Rodriguez, and Sara Shepard.
Of course, there will be plenty of ways to get your hands on some new reading material. A book sale takes place during the festival where you can shop for books and show your support for authors.
You'll definitely want to spend all day at this delightful festival. Food and drinks are available to purchase for your convenience. After all, there's no better way to enjoy a literary event than with a hot cup of coffee.
The Las Vegas Book Festival has easily proven itself to be one of the most exciting events the city has to offer. The festival's ultimate goal is to promote reading, literature, and arts to people of all ages, and we think it does that spectacularly.
