Utah Center for the Book

Utah Humanities Book Festival

Celebrating its 17th year this year, the Utah Humanities Book Festival is Utah’s oldest and only statewide book festival and has become Utah’s signature literary event. The festival is a chance for book lovers of all types to enjoy some great, free-of-charge literary events at locations throughout Utah.

The 17th annual Utah Humanities Book Festival is buzzing with a line-up of celebrated local, regional, national, and international authors, along with children's programming, poetry slamming, and plenty of discussions with authors.  The festival is statewide, free, and runs six weeks from September 18th through the end of October.

In Salt Lake City, a keynote day for the Festival will take place on Saturday, September 27th. However, communities around the state including Brigham City, St. George, Cedar City, Orem, and Boulder will be hosting festivals and programming of their own. There will be plenty to do around the state, so check back often for updates and keep an eye out for our full program in the first week of September.
