Planning Begins for Montana Book Festival

MontanaBookFestival_fob_exhibitorsApplications are now being accepted for exhibitors interested in the 2014 Montana Festival of the Book. The 2014 Montana Festival of the Book is almost completely free and open to the public. It will held in a variety of downtown Missoula venues on Oct. 11. Over 75 authors appear in at least 60 different events—panel discussions, readings, workshops, exhibits, receptions, demonstrations, signings, staged readings, and much more. Exhibit space is available in the atrium of the Holiday Inn Downtown, the center of festival activities.

All day Saturday events happen in spaces adjacent to the exhibit area. A Festival Bookstore is located in the middle of the exhibit space, and the exhibits are advertised at other venues. Exhibitor sales are allowed, although discounting of titles by festival authors is not.

Exhibit space is limited, so early reservations are recommended. For more information, please contact Sam Dwyer at Humanities Montana at (406) 243-6022 or e-mail at
