Mississippi Book Festival

Established as a non-profit organization in 2013 by a group of literacy advocates, the first Mississippi Book Festival was held on the lawn of the state Capitol, in August 2015, and attracted more than 3,700 enthusiastic attendees. This year's book fest is August 20th. Kima Jones will be on a panel moderated by Jesmyn Ward.
