The 2011 SOKY Book Fest, our 13th in a row, took place on Saturday, April 16, preceded by the Writers Conference and Children’s Day at the Carroll Knicely Conference Center on WKU’s South Campus. Headliners like Nicholas Sparks drew a big crowd to the event. They gave presentations and signed their books for hundreds of people.
The Southern Kentucky Book Fest is one of the state’s largest literary events and is presented by WKU Libraries, Warren County Public Library, and Barnes & Noble Booksellers. Held annually during National Library Week, the Book Fest appeals to thousands of readers of all ages who welcome the occasion to meet their favorite authors and purchase signed copies of their books.
