The Arkansas Literary Festival offers a mix of sessions, panels, special events, performances, workshops, book signings, and opportunities to meet authors. The 2019 festival will be April 25-28 and will take place at Library Square in downtown Little Rock.
We couldn't present so many great authors every year, most of them appearing free to the public, without the sustained effort and support of people like you. All forms of support are welcome and truly appreciated.
Volunteers are necessary to help with pre-festival marketing and planning, as well as festival coordination and operations management. If you'd like to volunteer your time and skill, please contact Polly Deems, CALS Volunteer Coordinator, by email or by phone at 918-3085.
Contributions are always welcome in any form. If you would like to send a check with your donation, please mail it to:

Little Rock, AR 72201
You may also make a secure online donation here (be sure to designate your gift for the Arkansas Literary Festival). This form is hosted on the Central Arkansas Library System's (CALS) primary website; the Arkansas Literary Festival is a project of CALS.
A group of dedicated volunteers assists Festival Coordinator Brad Mooy with planning the Festival. Committee chairs include Susan Santa Cruz, Cathy Spivey, and Melissa Woods, Festival Guides; Amy Bradley-Hole, Moderators; and Jennifer White, WITS.
