As our state’s signature literary event, the NC Book Festival provides a wide variety of audiences access to a diverse slate of local, national, and international writers and artists.

Featuring readings, panels, demonstrations, and lectures from award winning presenters and performers, the festival will showcase both traditional and non-traditional genres such as comic books and graphic novels, leveraging partnerships with collaborators such as NC State’s English Department and MFA program and the NC Comicon. These partnerships have resulted in an exciting lineup that includes National Book Award winner William T. Vollmann, Sandra Cisneros, Hanif Abdurraqib, and many others.

Another core element to this year’s festival is the book fair. A platform for local presses, authors, and vendors, the book fair will foster an appreciation for, and a familiarity with, the people and organizations who advocate for the authors and artists we love and produce and distribute the work that is so important to our cultural lives.
