South Dakota Festival of Books

Each year thousands of people converge on the annual South Dakota Festival of Books, a weekend-long event that features more than 40 well-known authors participating in book signings, presentations, panel discussions, and readings. Author presentations are separated into six tracks: fiction, non-fiction, poetry, children’s/young adult, history/tribal, and writer’s support.

The 2014 Festival featured large crowds, and we are expecting similar crowds at our 2015 Festival! We are so excited to have begun planning for the 13th annual South Dakota Festival of Books, to be held Sept. 24-27, 2015 in Deadwood and Rapid City. 

As in previous years, presentations will cover a wide range of topics and genres, including six main tracks: fiction, non-fiction, history/tribal, poetry, children’s/young adult and writers’ support.

Watch this page for updates as this great event comes together!
