Lehigh Valley Book Festival -Rescheduled

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.
