Quarry Festival of Books

10:00 am to 04:00 pm
Dunn Meadow, IU Bloomington

Indiana University Press will host the third annual Quarry Festival of Books on Saturday, October 13. The festival will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Dunn Meadow on the Indiana University Bloomington campus. The event is sponsored by Bloom Magazine and WFIU/WTIU.

The Quarry Festival of Books brings together local and regional authors to celebrate a blooming community of readers and writers in the Midwest. Over 20 authors of fiction and general interest titles will be present to autograph books and meet readers with more than 100 individual books available for purchase. The festival will include special giveaways, discounts on books, book readings and events, and a fun coloring center.

“Indianapolis and several other large cities around the country regularly host book festivals to provide local residence a chance to meet and talk to authors,” said Dave Hulsey, Associate Director of Indiana University Press. “With the thriving publishing community in Bloomington, we believe our community would appreciate the same opportunity.”

The Quarry Festival of Books will be the same day as IU Homecoming. It will be a tented event.

We have four missions: to support local businesses, local charities, local arts, and diversity. We are an integral part of the fabric of this community.
