The 2023 Louisville Book Festival will be held in downtown Louisville, KY on November 11th and 12th from 10 am to 6 pm at the Kentucky International Convention Center. This year will continue to give us the opportunity to celebrate the city’s culture and resiliency, while striving towards the goal that all children have access to books in their home. Highway 65 is the divide between east and west Louisville. West of 65, there are no book stores which greatly reduces access to books for our children and youth, creating a book desert. Our goal for the Louisville Book Festival is to ensure every child that attends the Book Festival on Children’s Day leaves with at least one free age appropriate book. We will continue to work on the goal of getting books in to the hands of children year round through our programs like It Pays to Read.
