Book Sales and Signings

Walter Isaacson at a book signing during the 2023 festival.

Books will be available for purchase and have signed by most of the authors attending the festival. We do our best to offer a wide variety of titles. Baldwin & Co, Octavia Books and Garden District Books are our official local independent bookstore partners, along with Barnes & Noble College.

Book sales and signings will take place in the Hyatt Regency Festival Tent, unless otherwise noted. While you may bring a favorite book from home for an author to sign, please understand that on-site book sales are critical to the success of the festival. By purchasing books on the day of the festival, you support our independent bookstores as well as the festival and the authors who travel from near and far to attend this event.
