Lehigh Valley Book Festival 2024

The Lehigh Valley Book Festival is a celebration of books and the strong connections they forge – bringing published authors, illustrators, and readers together, through thoughtful, approachable, and inclusive programming.

Our mission is based on the notion that reading is for everybody – and that people of all ages and interests can find something to spark their imagination, broaden their perspective, and nourish their spirit in a book.

Now in our 5th year March, 20 - 24, 2024!  Founded and produced by Let's Play Books Bookstore and sister store, The End: a bookstore. The Bethlehem Area Public Library, Cedar Crest College and PBS39 are proud partners of the 2024 Lehigh Valley Book Festival, and will host a number of creative programs for children, families and adults. 


 This annual program is coordinated by the bookstore/s, volunteers and incredible non-profit partners. There is no funding for this incredible event and we could use your help! 

 The author submission period is now closed.
