BookFest 2017 will take place Saturday, September 9, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., in the charming and historic town of Beaver, Pa. Since its humble beginnings in 2007, BookFest -- a "celebration of reading, writing, and the arts" -- has grown into one of the largest literary festivals in the state, attracting participants and attendees from across the country. BookFest will kick off on the evening of Friday, Sept. 8, during a ticketed event inside the Main Author Tent along Market Street in Beaver. Attendees will enjoy food and refreshments during an intimate women's author panel featuring five of the region's most talented female authors: Madhu B. Wangu, Linda M Au, Wende Dikec, Kara Knickerbocker, and Pamela Hart Vines. BookFest's Main Event will take place on Saturday, Sept. 9, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Attendees can meet more than 60 writers who will be signing and selling their books both inside and around the Author Tent. The festival will also feature food and retail vendors, as well as an interactive Children's Tent, where kids can listen to readings, watch performances, and take part in various activities. Beaver County BookFest is a non-profit event backed by the Friends of Beaver County BookFest and sponsored by PUSH Beaver County and PACyber. There is no charge for admission.
