{Top Ten Tuesday} Book Festivals to Attend One Day

Posted July 21, 2020 by Leah in Memes & Features, Top 10 Tuesday / 36 Comments

Hello, and welcome back to another edition of Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Ah, book festivals. Nothing beats getting together with fellow bibliophiles over your shared love of all things bookish. Alas, this is not the year for attending book festivals or conventions in person, but there has been the move to virtual fests. Consider this my list of events I’d like to see one day. 🙂


An ALA convention, any town, USA

Yallfest in Charleston, South Carolina, USA

Paris Book Festival, Paris, France, Europe

Bay Area Book Festival of Berkeley, CA, USA

Edinburgh International Book Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland, UK

Toronto International Festival of Authors in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

The Fay B. Kaigler Children’s Book Festival in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA

Brooklyn Book Festival, Brooklyn, NY, USA


Which book events do you want to go to?

  1. Edinburgh would probably be near the top of my list. I think it would be beautiful there. And I need to check out some of these virtual events.

  2. Edinburgh seems to be a popular choice for many in the book community. I was thinking of going this year, but then the world fell apart, so, maybe next year? Sigh.

      Right? I was on the lookout for more international panels and had a hard time finding some, but another Top Ten post had more comprehensive across the world.
