Savannah Book Festival 2022

Savannah Book Festival 2022 is right around the corner, scheduled for the weekend of February 17th through the 20th. This year’s in-person event headliners include David Baldacci, William Kent Krueger, and Friends & Fiction.

Bibliophiles visiting Savannah during the upcoming President’s Day weekend will not want to miss a chance to attend Savannah Book Festival 2022. This beloved annual event draws both renowned authors and dedicated fans of the written word to Savannah every spring for seminars, sales, readings, book signings, and so much more.

Best of all, our Savannah bed and breakfast is located in downtown’s historic district, just minutes from Savannah Book Festival and much of the best of Savannah. Spend the day at the festival and, when your done, your luxurious and historic McMillan Inn guestrooms are just a pleasant stroll or short drive away.

An In-Person Event

Though many events are currently up in the air due to the pandemic, Savannah Book Festival is still planning an in-person event. And what an event it will be!
