Authors + Panels + Book Signings + Booksellers

On a NEW DATE – Saturday, September 14 – the Mississippi Book Festival – the giant literary lawn party on the grounds of the state capitol building from 9 am to 5 pm – is free and open to the public. This one-of-a-kind event will bring together nearly 200 authors for a jam-packed day of literary learnings, events and fun.

Attendees will have the chance to see and listen to dozens of panel discussions, get books signed by their favorite authors, discover new writers and add to their book collections by books from several vendors and booksellers representing the State of Mississippi.

The Mississippi Book Festival will take advantage of its historic setting with tours of the Mississippi State Capitol. Families can also plant the roots for a lifelong love of reading by bringing children to enjoy the festival’s interactive Kids Corner, where kids will focus on books and authors to ignite the imagination. Food trucks will be on hand to serve the hungry crowds, designed especially for those who often get so lost in a book they forget to eat.

The heart of the festival can be found at Authors Alley, an open-air vendor set-up where bibliophiles can get up close and personal with their favorite published authors, buy their newest releases and get them to sign their copies. Authors Alley is also a great place to discover your new favorite author from a group of lesser-known and self-published authors whose books may just be the next great bestsellers.
