Book Fair

Saturday April 29, 2023

Are you curious to browse titles from regional small presses? Excited to peruse books by local authors?

Visit the Book Fair at the Ridges and Rivers Book Festival on Saturday, April 29th!

The fair runs from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm. Come wander the tables and meet authors and publishers in the McIntosh Memorial Library lobby and Western Technical College, and then head across Rock Avenue to the upper level of the Eagles Club for even more regional authors. Snap up some summertime reads just in time!

In addition to our favorite small presses and authors, Dragonfly Books (Decorah’s local independent bookstore) will be selling books by the festival’s featured authors in the McIntosh Memorial Library lobby throughout the entire festival, Friday, April 28th through Sunday, April 30th .
Many of the book fair authors will be reading at the festival’s Book Gardens, springing up at dining establishments and other businesses along Main Street on Saturday. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to hear from this variety of writers! Check back for Book Garden locations and schedules.

We don’t know about you, but we think books make great gifts – for yourself and others – and we love supporting small presses, independent bookstores, and regional authors. You’ll have the opportunity to do just that at the festival’s book fair!

Friends of the Library Bookstore (located inside the McIntosh Memorial Library) will have a Buy One Book Get One Free Sale during the Ridges & Rivers Book Festival:

Friday, April 28, 11:00 am – 5:00 pm
Saturday, April 29, 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
