With the coronavirus pandemic continuing and the health of readers and writers in mind, the 2020 South Dakota Festival of Books was an all-virtual experience in 2020.

The Festival, in its 18th year of bringing readers and writers together, typically includes more than 100 public presentations. In lieu of in-person events, the 60-plus authors on the 2020 roster discussed books, teach workshops, and interact with fans via Zoom, Crowdcast and Facebook Live. The lineup included local favorites and perennial bestsellers.
