The wait is over! One of your favorite events, and ours, returns Friday, October 14, 2022 at War Memorial Auditorium.

We hope you will join us for Authors In The Round, a special event dinner that provides vital funding for the 34th annual Southern Festival of Books. Your participation in the dinner ensures that Humanities Tennessee may continue to present the Festival at no charge.

We will gather with 40 regionally and nationally known authors for engaging conversations about their books and the Festival itself, which will feature more than 200 participating authors October 14-16.


This event would not be possible without the energetic dedication of our Event Chairs and generous sponsors:

Jay Joyner          Mary Jo Shankle          Mary Spalding          Tori Wimberly



The Southern Festival of Books is presented by Humanities Tennessee,
serving communities with public humanities programming since 1973.
