The Everywhere Book Fest Is Coming, and We’re So Excited

Books, authors, illustrators, and more!

Everywhere Book Fest

Have you ever wished you could attend a book festival—one filled with authors and books your students will adore—only to find out you missed the registration deadline or can’t afford conference admission and plane tickets? Me too! But, guess what? The Everywhere Book Fest is one you can attend. Online. For free. I know!

What, where, and when is Everywhere Book Fest?

The Everywhere Book Fest is a virtual celebration of authors, books, and readers that brings the book festival experience to everyone!

  • Live and pre-recorded sessions with your favorite picture book, middle grade, and young adult authors.
  • Friday, May 1st and Saturday, May 2nd, 10 AM to 4 PM Eastern Time

How can I watch?

You’ll be able to access both live and pre-recorded sessions through your web browser or on YouTube. Be sure to check out Everywhere Book Festival all over social:

Which authors will be there?

There are so many authors coming to the Everywhere Book Fest, we can’t list them all. Check out amazing writers and illustrators from Adam Rex to Grace Lin to Jason Reynolds to Meg Medina, and so many more.

Can kids go to the Everywhere Book Fest?

The whole event is kid-friendly, so it is perfect for teachers who are looking for something to either share with their students as entertainment, or tie in with their own lesson plans.

Is there a schedule?


Yes! You can check out any session you want. The good news is that a virtual book fest means that sessions don’t fill up. Yay! 

Can I get signed books?

The Everywhere Book Fest is working with indie booksellers to offer you signed books locally. This means you get to hold the books in your hot little hand and support your favorite local bookseller.

What are you waiting for? Go sign up!
