About the event
The 2022 Louisville Book Festival will be held in downtown Louisville, KY on October 28-29 from 10 am to 6 pm at the Kentucky International Convention Center. This will be our first year of holding the event in person. The past two years we have held the festival virtually due to the Coronavirus. The virtual festivals were very successful and full of attendees from across the world! This year will continue to give us the opportunity to celebrate the city’s culture and resiliency, while striving towards the goal that all children have access to books in their home. Highway 65 is the divide between east and west Louisville. West of 65, there are no book stores which greatly reduces access to books for our children and youth, creating a book desert. Our goal for the Louisville Book Festival is to ensure every child that attends the Book Festival on Children’s Day leaves with at least one free age appropriate book. We will continue to work on the goal of getting books in to the hands of children year round through our programs like It Pays to Read.
