 Kentucky Book FairFrankfort Convention Center, 405 Mero St, Over 150 authors, symposiums and more.

The Kentucky Book Fair, Inc., was founded in 1981 under the appropriate statutes of the Internal Revenue Service as a charitable and non-profit corporation for the sole purpose of staging an annual book fair….

The Kentucky Book Fair has three key goals:
To honor the profession of writing in the form of a one-day celebration
To provide a format for authors to meet their reading public
To raise money through the sale of books and donate all profits to mostly school and public libraries throughout Kentucky
The Book Fair corporation is composed of a 30-member volunteer board of directors and officers. A paid manager and part-time bookkeeper handle financial and day-to-day matters.

The Book Fair is Kentucky’s premier literary event and one of the largest of its kind in the nation. It is sponsored by the The State Journal, Frankfort’s daily newspaper, and co-sponsored by the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives and the University Press of Kentucky.

Each year approximately 150 authors attend the Book Fair to autograph copies of their latest book, generally published within the 12 months preceding the November Book Fair date. Between 4,000 and 5,000 patrons attend and gross sales annually top $120,000.
