Authors, Poets Featured at Annual Event

Each year, the South Dakota Festival of Books features more than 50 presenters who speak about their work during solo presentations and panels. The lineup includes writers from various genres, including fiction, non-fiction, history/tribal, poetry, children’s/YA, and writers’ support.
The South Dakota Festival of Books will be held virtually in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The virtual schedule can be accessed on our schedule page. For the latest Festival news, subscribe to our e-newsletter.
Festival presenters are selected via a competitive process for a limited number of slots, with decisions made between January and May. If you are an author who is interested in being considered to present at the 2021 festival, look for the application on this page next January.
