Here at PSG, it’s pretty obvious that we love everything book-related. We’ve previously written about the Boston Book Festival since it is one of the biggest book events in this area, but there are other popular book festivals all around the country.

The Brooklyn Book Festival is the “largest free literary event in New York City.” It’s a whole week long, and it features over 250 authors, as well as literary-themed events for children and adults alike!

The Chicago Tribune Printers Row Lit Fest is the largest free outdoor literary festival in the Midwest. It takes place in Printers Row, a neighborhood of Chicago that was once the printing hub of the Midwest. It features authors and performers from across the country, as well as booksellers who are showcasing new, used, and antiquarian books.

The Texas Book Festival is held in Austin, TX. It features typical book festival activities such as author readings and panel discussions, but also offers less conventional options, such as food trucks, family activities, and live music.

No matter where you are in the United States, there’s probably a group of people that love books as much as you do. Check to see if there’s a book festival in your area!
