About the Kentucky Book Fair: 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 of reading and writing. 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 3,500 readers of all ages flock to the event to meet their favorite writers and new authors as well. KBF Kids Day, open to schools all over the Commonwealth, gives hundreds of Kentucky students the opportunity to interact with authors through a series of engaging presentations. Kentucky Book Fair programs are free and open to the public; KBF Kids Day programs require registration.
