The 2017 Nebraska Book Festival will mark the 24th annual book festival dating back to 1991. Historically, the Nebraska Book Festival has offered high-quality speakers, presenters, moderators, and workshop facilitators. The Nebraska Book Festival (formerly the Nebraska Literature Festival 1991-2001) has been co-sponsored by the Nebraska Center for the Book and the Humanities Nebraska (formerly Nebraska Humanities Council) since its inception in 1991. The Nebraska Library Commission and many other organizations and individuals have contributed to the festivals over the years.
This year’s festival will have two performances by the Mesner Puppet Theater of Kansas City, author presentations, publishing panels, and signings by local and regional authors, as well as vendors from all across Nebraska.
The University of Nebraska Press, Nebraska Library Commission, Nebraska Center for the Book, Lincoln City Libraries, Indigo Bridge Books, and Redbrush are sponsors for this year’s festival.
