The second annual Carrollton BookFest will be held on April 5th and 6th, 2024. We are excited to extend the Writers Conference to two days. On Friday, workshops will be offered along with a Master Class with Bren McClain. Friday evening will be a performance of work by the Carrollton Writers Guild in collaboration with the Carroll County Community Theater. Saturday morning will kick off with an interview with our Featured Author, the fabulous Rick Bragg. Presentations by best selling authors, Hank Phillippi Ryan and Deborah Goodrich Royce, will headline the theme of mystery and crime. Robert Gwaltney, winner of the Georgia Author of the Year for best first novel and Kim Conrey,named Georgia Author of the Year for Romance, will speak. These are only highlights in two days full of national and local accomplished authors.

All events are priced separately. It is a small fee for a great event. Tickets available at the door!
