Savannah Book Festival offering events year-round
By ZACH POWERS
Local book lovers know to block off Presidents Day weekend on their calendars. That’s when the Savannah Book Festival brings in dozens of authors, from international bestsellers to local and regional favorites, for a four-day celebration of the written word.
Eight years in, the Book Fest has expanded from an ambitious event in Telfair Square attended mostly by locals to a three-square, 40-author event that’s nationally known. And now it’s expanding again.
Starting on Tuesday with a release party for Mary Kay Andrews’ new book, the aptly named “Save the Date,” the Book Festival will kick off a year-round schedule of events, featuring high-profile authors from around the nation.Read More

Original Oil Painting Features Beloved Bookstore
The 2014 Savannah Book Festival “Lose Yourself in Books” painting depicts Savannah’s oldest bookstore, E. Shaver, Bookseller, an iconic and beloved landmark on Madison Square.
The painting was created by artist Becky Frame who has painted professionally for many years. In 2011, Becky and her husband Tim opened their own gallery, LOCAL COLOR, in Sandfly, GA.
