The annual Utah Humanities Book Festival is Utah’s oldest and only statewide book festival and has become Utah’s signature literary event. Each year, the festival is a chance for book lovers of all types to enjoy some great, free-of-charge literary events at locations throughout Utah.
The 2016 festival ran from September 13th – October 29th. As the annual statewide celebration of literature, Utha Humanities worked with partners in scores of Utah communities. Organizations across the state hosted hundreds of book festival events featuring both national and local authors. Participants engaged with authors through panel discussions, book signings, and conversations that connected both reader and writer.
