Used Book Sale: DEC 7
Share this with your book-loving friends
We will have a booth set up at the Chestatee Regional Hospital’s Winterfest, which will be part yard sale, part craft show, beginning at 8 am on Saturday, Dec. 7, 2013 in the parking lot of the old BB&T building (across from the Holly) in Dahlonega, GA. Come browse our selection and pick up a few Christmas gifts (and maybe some for yourself!). We will have hundreds of books to choose from.
Several regional authors have been added to this year’s roster. Don’t forget to visit their booths at the 2014 Dahlonega Literary Festival!
Author pictures and full bios coming soon to the Regional Authors page.

Jackson’s new book, Someone Else’s Love Story, is set partially in Dahlonega.
It’s shaping up to be an exciting and entertaining festival!

Due to the unceasing bad weather, we were forced to cancel the 4th of July Used Book Sale. We apologize to those who came out to see us despite the rain to find nothing but parking lots. But fear not! We will be rescheduling it and having it sometime this fall.

With the 2014 Dahlonega Literary Festival only 10 months away, we’re starting to get our visiting authors lined up. We are happy to announce the first set of authors confirmed to be part of 10th annual festival!
The Dahlonega Literary Festival is an annual celebration of books. The next festival will take place March 25-26, 2017. Situated in Historic Downtown Dahlonega, the festival continues to grow and become more and more entertaining as the years go on. We promise it will delight anyone who is a lover of books and reading. All festival events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.
Each year the festival presents a slate of invited authors representing a variety of genres sharing their ideas and experiences in various programs. In addition, a number of regional authors (ranging from local to other areas of the Southeast) have the opportunity to purchase a table to both interact with festival attendees and sell their books.
The Dahlonega Literary Festival is supported by donations and grants from Georgia Humanities, in partnership with the Georgia Department of Economic Development, and the Georgia Council for the Arts, through funding from the Georgia General Assembly.
2017 Festival Authors include:
Jacob Appel (Saturday only)
Rita Mae Brown
