Plan Your Festival Experience

September 17, 2022

History Writers at the South Dakota Festival of Books

So many authors, so little time!

We’re less than a week away from enjoying an exciting variety of workshops, presentations, and handshakes with our favorite authors – not to mention delicious lunch served by local food trucks and complimentary ice cream for dessert!

With a little bit of pre-planning, you can create a Festival itinerary that best suits your interests. We encourage Festival-goers to register for ticketed events ahead of time, and to keep an eye on SDHC’s Facebook page and for pertinent updates.

Festival Director Jennifer Widman and SDHC Board Member Stephen Williamson spoke on KELOLAND Living this week about other ways to prepare for the 2022 Festival of Books. Check out their interview with Ashley Thompson for details!
