Franklin Book Festival

10:00am - 5:00pm

Join us for the Franklin Book Festival, a free event held at the Franklin branch of the Williamson Library in the large meeting room. The hours are 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Saturday, June 4th and 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 5th.

We have invited 33 prominent authors who will conduct 11 panel presentations. On the hour, we will have a 40-minute panel, with 3 authors, 10 minutes each to discuss their books, their writing, and their experience as an author. This will be followed by 20 minutes of casual informal interaction between authors and guests.

There will be tables with book displays around the perimeter of the meeting room, with two or three authors at each table. In the 20-minute period you can mingle with several renowned authors and some of your neighbors who have written and published a book.
