Mississippi Book Festival: A Literary Lawn Party!

Celebrating Mississippi's authors and their contributions to the culture of literacy, imagination and ideas

Known as Mississippi's Literary Lawn Party, the festival has become a nationally recognized premier event that attracts book lovers, writers, and publishers from Mississippi, the region, and the nation. Free and open to the public, the festival hosts author panel discussions and interviews, book signings, live music, local food, young adult and children's activities, and exhibitors from across the state. The mission of the festival is to recognize authors and the books they produce, to celebrate writing, reading, and our literary heritage, and to connect readers with contemporary authors.

Contributions of $1,500 or more receive benefits and are recognized in festival marketing. Please contact Holly Lange, Mississippi Book Festival Executive Director, at holly@msbookfestival.com to learn about mutually advantageous levels of giving. Get ready for a great literary lawn party!
