The 12th Annual Savannah Book Festival will continue to celebrate nationally-recognized and local authors through their contributions to literacy, ideas, and imagination. Festival Saturday is a free and open to the public event that features solo author presentations in seven venues around Telfair, Chippewa and Wright Squares in historic downtown Savannah. Our headlining authors events, featuring some of the biggest names in the book world, are ticketed at a nominal fee.
Savannah Book Festival celebrates books and the written word and brings authors from around the country to Savannah. The authors will present their work to audiences of book lovers eager to hear what they have to say. The guests include bestselling authors of popular fiction and non-fiction, as well as historians, lifestyle experts, and other critically acclaimed authors.
The festival’s annual Festival Saturday will take place on February 16, 2019 at venues in and around Telfair Square in beautiful downtown Savannah. The Festival, which runs from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., is free and open to the public. On Saturday, Author Silas House brings his novel Southernmost To Savannah Book Festival. The novel Southernmost begins with a flood of biblical proportions. The aftermath is set in a Southern Appalachian town where a fundamentalist preacher struggles with his rigid beliefs.

“…Eleven hundred men went into the water. Vessel went down in twelve minutes…”
You may recognize those words as part of Robert Shaw’s monologue in the movie “Jaws,” but a new book exposes what really happened that day. Indianapolis: The True Story of the Worst Sea Disaster in U.S. Naval History and the 50-Year Fight to Exonerate an Innocent Man. The authors, Lynn Vincent and Sara Vladic, will present the closing address on Sunday, February 17. Indianapolis is the culmination of years of research and tells the story of — and those surrounding — what is arguably the United States’ most famous naval warship. There was a great interview with authors Vincent and Vladic on GBP’s “On Second Thought” that you can listen to here.
