SBF Virtual Events

The 2021 Savannah Book Festival was held virtually to address the need for safety and precaution during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although we are very excited to be presenting an in-person event in 2022, the precedent set by last year’s Festival inspired a series of virtual author programs all throughout 2021, where interactive appearances were live-streamed directly to our Festival audience. These online events featured the same up-close and personal author presentations and conversations that have made the SBF so unique among book festivals. In case you missed any virtual events, you can find the recordings right here on our website. Much like how Festival Saturday’s are free to the public, the recordings of the 2021 virtual event series are free for your viewing. Scroll through to see the authors we’ve hosted virtually!
