A Word from the Honorary Co-Chairs of the Festival

As honorary co-chairs of the inaugural Oklahoma Book Festival, we invite you to join us on Saturday, October 20th at the Boathouse District in Oklahoma City for a fun-filled day of celebrating our incredible literary heritage.

Bring your family and friends and meet more than 50 authors, illustrators, and poets from Oklahoma and across the nation. Enjoy a bite to eat from Oklahoma City’s most popular food trucks. Enjoy entertainment and special appearances. And, we even hear some Jedis and Storm Troopers will be stopping by!

Please check back regularly for updates and more information. We look forward to seeing you on October 20th when the Boathouse District is transformed into the “Book House District!”

See you soon!
