Every October, the Friends of the Saratoga Springs Public Library’s Saratoga Book Festival presents literary programming featuring about 30 panel discussions, solo book talks, writing workshops, and even a few casual book chats in area pubs. Our programs are aimed at adults, children, and YA audiences.
We are now accepting submissions for the 2024 Festival to be held October 5 & 6. Submission instructions are below:
All authors who are invited to participate will be featured in at least one panel or solo session; the Festival does not feature authors for book signings only. Authors must be prepared to cover their own travel expenses.
We select speakers through active recruitment as well as open festival submissions, from January 1 to May 1 annually. During this time, we invite submissions of new, published books of adult fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, as well as books for the YA audience and young readers. To be considered, books must be published in the eighteen months preceding the festival; priority consideration will be given to books published within the festival year. Submitted materials cannot be returned.
