The annual BIPOC Book Fest is a two-day festival centered on writers of color and a showcase of literary works that feature Black, Indigenous, People of Color and members of other marginalized communities. Curated by notable writers and readers of color, the festival combines the nostalgia of book fairs we knew and loved as students with unique programming, artist talks, readings vendors, book-related memorabilia, must-reads from all genres, and more!
