The Free Library of Philadelphia is taking its annual Philadelphia Book Festival on the road, with events happening at each of the Library’s 54 locations throughout the city. Previously held only at the Parkway Central Library, the seventh annual Book Festival will now expand to every neighborhood library, giving members of all Philadelphia communities the chance to enjoy incredible author events.
Taking place during National Library week, April 14-20, 2013, the Festival will feature headlining author events--including Rachel Maddow and Ken Kalfus-- in the Parkway Central Library every day as well as special author appearances--such as Karen Quinones Miller and Solomon Jones--in every neighborhood library throughout the week. A burst of books and inspiration, the week-long Philadelphia Book Festival embraces literacy, creativity, and the arts with a diverse array of free and ticketed events for all.
