Festival Saturday Schedule

We are excited to release the line up for Festival Saturday.  SBF is proud to present a line up that includes a wide variety of genres and topics!  When planning your day, please remember some venues fill up quickly, arrive early for those authors on your “must see list” and have a back up plan.  Our volunteers will do their best to inform those in line that will not make it into the venue, due to capacity limits, in order to allow enough time to reach an alternate venue.  Keep in mind, attendees from the previous session are allowed to remain in the venue and will be factored into the capacity limits at each venue.  As a courtesy to our presenters, once the session has begun the doors will close and there will be no late admittance.  Please be respectful of the authors and our volunteers and honor the guidelines.

Schedule is subject to change.
