Celebrating 10 Years of the Alabama Book Festival
We saw lots of old friends and met many new ones at the 10th Annual Alabama Book Festival in April 2015! Tenth anniversaries are milestones, and last year we celebrated a decade of ABF with even more exciting events that honor reading and literacy in Alabama. It was a great day of family fun in beautiful downtown Montgomery, and we look forward to celebrating future milestones with you. Here's what folks are saying about the 2015 Festival:

"Thanks" doesn't seem like enough to say for all the hard work, all the thought, all the wonderful volunteering and commitment that go into this jewel of a book festival. I look forward to it every year and am never disappointed--I go home inspired to write more, read more, and spread the word more about our Alabama literary treasures.

It was a great day with great authors. Thank you Mr. Pat Conroy for staying and signing for all of us - all four hours. Truly a class act!

I had a great time at the 10th annual Alabama Book Festival! Well done!

Thanks to the Festival for inviting Mr. Conroy... my first time attending and got to meet Pat Conroy, he signed "South of Broad" (my favorite book of his) and he spoke to me & had my picture made w/ him. Such a wonderful experience. I will DEFINITELY be back next year!!


Thank you to all our generous Sponsors,  Partners, and Friends, without whom there would not be an Alabama Book Festival.
