OCTOBER 17-20, 2019

and year round

in partnership with the MADISON PUBLIC LIBRARY FOUNDATION

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

The proposal period for the 2019 four-day celebration from October 17-20 ended on June 30th. If you are interested in proposing a stand-alone Wisconsin Book Festival event outside that window, you can email your proposal to bookfest@mplfoundation.org at any time.
 
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

 
Proposals for the fall celebration are reviewed throughout the summer.  Final decisions on accepted proposals were made in August, and this year's schedule is set.  We appreciate your support and look forward to this year's four-day celebration.
