Festival events at a Glance (downloadable fliers below)
The annual South Dakota Festival of Books unites thousands of readers and writers for book discussions, autograph sessions and more. Authors Phillip Deloria and Genieve Abdo highlight our 2017 "Race and Civility" theme (pictured to the right), while 2017 One Book author J. Ryan Stradal presents his unique debut novel that provides timely and at times humorous commentary on current food trends.
Meanwhile, the 2017 Young Readers selection is “Tales from Deckawoo Drive,” a bind-in of three books in a series written by Kate DiCamillo and illustrated by Chris Van Dusen. Van Dusen will discuss his inspiration behind the illustrations he created, and much more.
SDHC will also celebrate its 45th anniversary at the 2017 Festival of Books, which marks its own 15-year anniversary. Download fliers below for more information.
