This is a test event created just for testing purpose.
With author readings, workshops, vendors and exhibitors, author signings, and a lively activity area for children, this free public event is Alabama’s premier literary event. Thousands of people from around the state and the Southeast gather at the festival each year to meet their favorite authors and scholars. It’s a day of fun for book lovers of all ages! This year the Alabama Book Festival will continue our tradition of promoting reading and literacy to Alabamians of all ages and backgrounds at Old Alabama Town in Montgomery on Saturday, April 22, 2017.
Students, parents and teachers are invited to attend the Letters About Literature Award Ceremony.
