The Wisconsin Book Festival focuses primarily on hosting events for recent publications. We host events in all genres.

Full proposals should include:

  • author's name
  • book title
  • ISBN
  • publisher name
  • publication date of the book for which you are proposing an event
  • an outline of the proposed event, including potential dates
  • any review/supporting materials that could aid in our decision-making
  • a statement about availability for virtual or in-person events
  • a confirmation that you have the equipment necessary to present remotely via videoconference

We appreciate your support and look forward to our 23rd annual Fall Celebration in 2024.
