Memphis Public Library’s largest author festival, BOOKSTOCK 2017 will return again for another year of carnival-style fun for the whole family this April.

Bigger and better than last year, this year’s event will feature four (4) keynote authors – Lisa Wingate, Daniel Connolly, ReShonda Tate Billingsley, and Adrienne Berard – along with more than 40 local authors at the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library. In addition to book signings and author talks, customers will enjoy live music, food trucks, cooking demonstrations, door prizes, face painting, arts and crafts for kids, a book-character costume contest, a scavenger hunt around Central Library, and more.
