The 2011 Nebraska Book Festival marks the 19th annual book
festival dating back to 1991. Historically, the Nebraska Book
Festival has offered high-quality speakers, presenters, moderators,
and workshop facilitators. For more information on past festivals
visit the Nebraska Center for the Book’s
Nebraska Book Festival information page.
The Nebraska Book Festival (formerly the Nebraska Literature
Festival 1991-2001) has been co-sponsored by the Nebraska Center
for the Book and the Nebraska Humanities Council since its
inception in 1991. The Nebraska Library Commission and many
other organizations and individuals have also contributed to the
festivals over the years.
The change of name from Nebraska Literature Festival to
Nebraska Book Festival in 2002 broadened the scope of the event to
include contemporary Nebraska writers and books, as well as the
great classic writers of Nebraska’s literary heritage. The
festival is dedicated to Nebraska writers and books and
celebrates the reading and writing life of Nebraska.
