DETROIT – With just one month left, the all-volunteer Detroit Festival of Books is making final preparations for the seventh-annual Bookfest on Sunday, July 21.

Bookfest is expanding beyond its traditional venue in Shed 5. For the first time in its history, Bookfest will also be present inside portions of Shed 4, the Russell Street parking area adjoining Shed 4, and the plaza adjoining Shed 5.

“It’s becoming a much bigger event than it was when we started in 2017” said Ryan M. Place, founder and chairman of Bookfest. “We’ll have more booksellers, authors, and organizations with children’s programming. And we’ll have more volunteers to make sure Bookfest is a fun experience for everyone. Stay tuned!”

The Detroit Festival of Books will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, July 21. Admission is free. Photos of the 2023 Bookfest are available for download and use via this link.
