The Bookfest Grows Again

Posted on September 1, 2017 | in CAL News, Events | by

The second Colorado Book Festival, co-sponsored by the Colorado Authors’ League and the Denver Public Library, took another big step toward its new era when the Denver Post Foundation signed on as a sponsor of the March 3, 2018 event. The Post will be supporting and helping to build attendance for the day-long festivities. Reader-oriented programs, tours and chances to talk to participating authors – among many other events and happenings – will occupy several floors at the main Denver Public Library on Civic Center Park.

CAL and the library quickly put together its first festival effort in 2016. With more time, study of other cities’ festivals and wide community and sponsor support, the next festival is shaping up as a bigger, more-populous celebration of reading, all kinds of writing, and literacy. Author sign-ups will start this fall, with CAL members getting both priority and a discount. CBF Director Rachel Kodanaz expects the Program Committee will be announcing programs – many of them featuring celebrity authors, media personalities and topic experts – later in the fall.

Kris Walker is already pulling in sponsorships from other media outlets, foundations, supporters of the arts, publishers and others. She can be reached Kris@coloradoauthors.org. For more info: Rachel Kodanaz is at Rachel@coloradoauthors.org
