The Alabama Book Festival couldn’t exist without lots of dedicated volunteers. More than 130 volunteers help make the event happen for the thousands of visitors who come to hear authors they love and authors they leave the festival loving.  Festival visitors and authors and exhibitors all say over and over again how much they enjoy the festival and how much they enjoy the hospitality that all of our volunteers extend to them. The Festival relies on its volunteers -- thank you all for helping this year, and we hope to see you on April 11, 2015.
