Savannah Book Festival (SBF) celebrates 13 years of bringing both new and award-winning authors to Savannah in 2020. The annual event is the perfect place to discover and buy new books. You can hear your favorite authors speak, collect their signatures, learn about the craft, and so much more!
The festival is held in and around Telfair Square in historic downtown Savannah. Attendees will enjoy book sales, book signings, food trucks, and more than 40 author presentations. While the presentations are free, seats are limited and go fast. If there’s a particular author you hope to hear, be sure to get there early!
Headliners for this year’s festival include Joseph Kanon, John Grisham, and John Becker and Megan Scott. Joseph Kanon, author of “The Good German,” “Alibi,” and 6 other books will speak on “The Accomplice,” his latest work. John Grisham will discuss his new legal thriller, “The Guardians.” John Becker and Megan Scott will discuss their update of the classic “Joy of Cooking.”
While author presentations at the festival are free, the above Headline Events are ticketed. Tickets go on sale at 10am on January 13th, 2020 on the SBF website. They’ll also be available via the Savannah Box Office.
