About the event

The mission of the Festival of Books in the Alleghenies is to promote authors, celebrate reading and build community spirit while supporting literacy programs.

This year, our fundraising efforts are focused on supporting childhood literacy through the Dolly Parton Imagination Library in Cambria, Bedford, and Somerset counties.

The Festival of Books will kick off with a Keynote Author Reception on Friday, September 15, at the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art, Loretto, featuring bestselling author of Smalltime and other books, Russell Shorto.

On Saturday, September 16, the Festival will bring a buzz to Veterans Park in downtown Ebensburg with over fifty authors, a full day of programs on the main stage, children’s activities, interactive writing-related workshops hosted by the University of Pittsburgh Johnstown, and a slew of food trucks.

We are immensely grateful to our event sponsors, Somerset Trust Company, Sunbury Press, Catamount Press, and the Writers Conference of Northern Appalachia!

The Festival of Books is proud to be a fund under the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies.
