Event Details

South Dakota Festival of Books

October 7-9, 2011

Each year thousands of people converge on the annual South Dakota Festival of Books, a weekend-long event that features more than 60 well-known authors participating in book signings, presentations, panel discussions and readings. Author presentations are separated into six tracks: fiction, non-fiction, poetry, children’s/youth, history/tribal, and writer’s support.  This year we've included an additional track for our festival theme: American Indian Cultures.

Over the course of eight festivals, many distinguished authors and cultural figures have attended, such as Marilynne Robinson, Ted Kooser, Dave Eggers, Sonia Monzano, Annie Proulx, Quincy Troupe, Susan Power, Louise Erdrich, Pete Dexter, and Ivan Doig; NPR hosts Carl Kassel and Neal Conan; and publishing industry representatives including Judy Hottensen, John Glusman, and Paul Cirone.
