Utah Humanities Book Festival
The annual Utah Humanities Book Festival is Utah’s oldest and only statewide book festival and has become Utah’s signature literary event.
Each year, the festival is a chance for book lovers of all types to enjoy some great, free-of-charge literary events at locations throughout Utah.
We are Celebrating our 20th Anniversary!
Our 2017 Utah Humanities Book Festival marks 20 years of improving Utah communities through reading, literature, and conversations with authors and each other.
As our annual statewide celebration of literature, we work with partners in scores of Utah communities. Organizations across the state will again host hundreds of book festival events featuring both national and local authors. As always, participants will engage with authors through panel discussions, book signings, and conversations that are designed to connect both reader and writer.
