Seven outdoor stages will feature everything from celebrity and author readings, book signings and Q&A's, live music, comedy and children's activities to cooking shows and culinary demonstrations. Nearly 100 panel discussions and readings featuring more than 400 authors blend with hundreds of exhibitors representing booksellers, publishers, literacy and cultural organizations to make the Festival of Books one of the city's most cherished and engaging institutions.
