Each year, more than 170 local and national authors participate in the event, signing their latest books and meeting readers from Kentucky and surrounding states. On average, nearly 4,000 readers flock to downtown Frankfort to meet their favorite writers and learn about new authors.

Since its inception in 1981, the Kentucky Book Fair has been connecting readers and authors in a celebration of shared passion and mutual interest: the importance and promotion of writing and reading.
