Behind the Scenes with Savannah Book Festival

A behind the scenes peek at the production room for our recent Savannah Book Festival (SBF) virtual event with Dave Barry, hosted by Harrison Scott Key.  While we are disappointed that current circumstances will not allow us to come together face-to-face for the 2021 SBF, we are enjoying the opportunity to bring you award winning authors virtually.  Keeping our mission alive, one author at a time.
