We're planning big things for the 25th annual Southern Festival of Books: A Celebration of the Written Word, October 11-13, 2013 at Legislative Plaza and the State Capitol in downtown Nashville. We hope you'll be a part of it!
The Festival is a free event with no registration or tickets required. Author sessions take place in the hearing rooms of the Tennessee Legislature, located beneath Legislative Plaza (main entrance at 6th and Union) and in the Tennessee Capitol Building (main entrance on Charlotte).
All author signings take place in the Author Signing Colonnade, located at the top of the steps leading from Legislative Plaza to War Memorial Auditorium.
