BookFest PA 2017

Comics to Cozies

The BookFest PA 2017 Author Tent is now full! Any interested authors can still apply. However, you will be applying to a wait list in case of a cancelation. 

Since its founding in 2009, BookFest PA has grown into an important community event that celebrates the art of the book. 

In 2015 event organizers wanted to experiment with harnessing the power and excitement of a particular fan base and celebrate the often-overlooked comic book. For the last two years we have enjoyed a wonderful miniature comic book convention. 

While we love comics and feel a uniting theme is important to our event, State College now has Nittany Con so we know comics are getting the attention they deserve.  We also  want to include more local authors and invite back some popular local talent. For these reasons we are expanding our experiment to try a different theme-- genre fiction books. We know our community is full of diehard genre fiction fans! We invite you to celebrate mystery, romance, science fiction, fantasy, comics, graphic novels, children's fiction, and more. 

If you are a local author of these genres please apply using the attached application.  We hope everyone will help us spread the word about the changing theme and reach the genre fiction lovers in our community! Just like the last two years we will be accepting applications from PA and the surrounding Northeastern states. 

We look forward to celebrating everything from comics to cozies with you on July 15, 2017!
