The Kentucky Humanities Council and the Kentucky Book Fair have joined forces. The Kentucky Humanities Council (KHC) will present the 35th annual Kentucky Book Fair on November 5, 2016, from 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., at the Frankfort Convention Center in Frankfort, KY. The sixth annual Children’s Day will be held on Friday, November 4, from 9 a.m.-2:30 p.m., also at the convention center.
Previously operated by a nonprofit independent board of volunteers, the Kentucky Book Fair will now be under the management of the KHC, while continuing a partnership with the Kentucky Book Fair board and the many volunteers who have made the book fair the state’s premier literary event for the past 34 years.
The Kentucky Book Fair attracts writers of all genres and patrons of all walks of life in a celebration of shared passion and mutual interest — the importance and promotion of writing and reading. Each year nearly 200 authors are present at the Kentucky Book Fair, which seeks to promote and support literacy for the public good.
The KHC is an independent, nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The KHC is supported by the National Endowment and by private contributions. For information about the Council’s programs and services, visit kyhumanities.org.
