2009 Seattle Bookfest
Remember the old Northwest Bookfestival on the waterfront?
How much fun it was? Well, it's about to happen again!
The resurrected fair will feature more than 100 local authors, including poets and writers of fiction, nonfiction, mystery, romance, fantasy, and children's books. In addition, the fair will showcase over 50 area bookstores, nonprofits, and small but influential publishers as exhibitors. There is also a long list of panels, workshops and special events including a spelling bee, SCRABBLE contests, bookbinding demo, and a How-to-Write-a-Novel-in-a-Month workshop.
NEW: Detailed Schedule and Floor plan available now! See Event Details page.
The event is produced by Columbia City Cinema and co-sponsored by the Columbia City Business Association and the Rainier Chamber of Commerce. Lacking corporate sponsorship, the event has become a grassroots effort, with funding and volunteer support coming from the community, the Seattle School District, the Seattle Public Library and enthusiastic exhibitors.
