Update for 2021 Festival

Due to the virtual format for the upcoming Savannah Book Festival events, the call for volunteers has been put on hold.  It is anticipated that upon the return to a traditional in-person format, a call for volunteers will be issued at a later date.


The Savannah Book Festival would not happen without the tireless efforts of close to 200 volunteers.  

Thank you to all of our wonderful 2020 Festival volunteers!  

Please check back late summer/early fall for 2021 Savannah Book Festival volunteer registration.

To ensure a successful Festival, we need the help of scores of volunteers! The duties are mostly physically light and social.
