Bookmarks’ 14th Festival of Books and Authors will take place September 6–9 in downtown Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Bookmarks’ Festival continues to be the largest annual book festival in the Carolinas. 51 award-winning and bestselling authors will visit Winston-Salem over the course of the four days. This year will celebrate the power of story—and will enable readers and attendees to “travel all over the world” to explore a wealth of subjects and issues.
The Bookmarks Festival app provides everything you need to plan your Festival experience, including author biographies, schedules by day and venue, ticket information, frequently asked questions, and more! You can also save information for future reference or share via message, mail, social media and more.
