Southern Kentucky Book Fest Shines with Best Selling Authors

Harris-bookBOWLING GREEN, Ky. (4/16/14) — New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris will headline the Southern Kentucky Book Fest April 26 at WKU’s Knicely Conference Center.

With more than 30 years of writing experience, Harris is best known for her "Sookie Stackhouse" series. The series was so well-received, it was the inspiration for the HBO series "True Blood." Harris will be one of the featured speakers in the morning and available for book signings after her program.

Chris Raschka, a two-time Caldecott Medal winner and author and illustrator of “A Ball for Daisy,” will be headlining Children’s Day April 25.

Raschka will be presenting April 25 and signing books April 25 and 26.

“We are very excited about the upcoming SOKY Book Fest,” said Kristie Lowry, Coordinator for SOKY Book Fest and Literary Outreach Coordinator for WKU Libraries. “We have over 140 authors and illustrators participating this year from a full slate of genres. Lots of Harris fans along with many other book lovers have been inquiring about the day.”
