Update for 2022 Festival

SBF is thrilled to announce that we are returning to an in-person format for the 2022 Savannah Book Festival. SBF will implement safety guidelines that comply with recommendations from the City of Savannah and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in place at the time of the festival.


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

To ensure a successful Festival, we need the help of scores of volunteers! The duties are mostly physically light and social. Please see below for a specific list of jobs available before and during the Festival. A number of volunteer opportunities with varying time commitments are available. The Festival runs February 17-20, 2022.

  • Venue Usher
    Be an SBF ambassador on Festival Saturday and assist with venue transition and audience seating for a morning or afternoon shift as a venue usher.
    Dynamic diplomatic skills and friendly attitude are a plus. A $5 lunch voucher for the food trucks is your reward!
