THANK YOU authors, illustrators, publishers, literary organizations, sponsors, and volunteers for making the 2017 Deep Valley Book Festival and the Authors & Appetizers Gala a success! Thanks to all who attended these events and we hope to see you again next year
The Deep Valley Book Festival gets its name from the setting of the beloved children's books (Betsy-Tacy) written by Mankato-born author Maud Hart Lovelace. The Festival provides readers the chance to interact with their favorite authors and meet new ones. This FREE family event features authors and illustrators, book sales and signings, a full day of programs, panel discussions, readings, children's programs, and more. The Authors & Appetizers Gala is a fundraiser for the book festival to ensure this family-oriented literary event can be offered free-of-charge to the public.
