Southern Kentucky Book Festival Brings 150 Authors to Bowling Green

More than 150 authors will be in Bowling Green Friday and Saturday for the 2019 Southern Kentucky Book Festival. 

Festival Coordinator Sara Volpi says the annual event is a great way to introduce the Bowling Green area to authors and visitors.

"The authors enjoy coming in and meeting new fans, and seeing old fans too. There's a lot of authors to discover and a lot of unique talent that comes into Bowling Green, and for some of these people it's their first trip to Bowling Green."

The headliner at this year's Southern Kentucky Book Festival is Angie Jackson, author of, The Hate You Give, which tells the story of a 16 year old African-American girl who witnesses the police shooting death of a close friend. 

The festival begins Friday at 9 a.m. at the Knicelly Conference Center on WKU's south campus and runs through Saturday afternoon at 3 p.m.
