SOKY Book Fest Partners

Barnes & Noble Booksellers

We work hand-in-hand with our bookseller to bring you the latest, greatest books for sale at Book Fest, along with backlist titles and other goodies from the Barnes and Noble store right here in Bowling Green.

Warren County Public Library

With four permanent locations in town, WCPL is a crucial part of the community. We’re lucky to be able to assist them in fulfilling their mission of providing equal access to the discovery of ideas, the joy of reading, and the power of information. Their support and assistance throughout the year makes events like SOKY Reads!, Children’s Day, and more possible.

WKU Libraries

Providing access to students and alum at WKU extends to the surrounding communities through organization of events like Book Fest. WKU Libraries serves as the seat of planning and implementation for Book Fest, including author visits, website maintenance, and other behind-the-scenes activities.
