Each year the festival presents a slate of invited authors representing a variety of genres sharing their ideas and experiences in various programs. In addition, a number of regional authors (ranging from local to other areas of the Southeast) have the opportunity to purchase a table to both interact with festival attendees and sell their books.
The 2016 Festival Authors will include:
Jacob M. Appel
Jackie K Cooper
Delilah S. Dawson
Looking to add to your book collection? The Friends of Lumpkin County Library will offer a selection of rare, old, and downright nifty books at the Dahlonega Literary Festival this year. Visitors can browse a selection of fiction and non-fiction books, many dating back to the 1800’s. Topics such as the Civil War and Abraham Lincoln will be offered as well as novels by renowned authors including Dickens, Joyce, and Huxley (to name but a few). Add a wonderful book to your collection or give a gift that will surely be cherished. All proceeds to benefit the Lumpkin County Library.
On both Saturday and Sunday of the festival, the official Dahlonega Literary Festival bookseller, FoxTale Book Shoppe, will be located in the Community House. They will carry books by all of the festival’s featured authors and those making a special appearance.
