BookFest Gwinnett will be held on June 15, 2019

Norcross Cultural Arts and Community Center
10 College St NW
Norcross, GA 30071


The Main Stage will be in the Ballroom on the first floor of the Community Center. On the lower floor, you will find the Bookstore in Room #3 and the Children’s Stage in Room #5. The facility has an elevator.

The Young Adult Stage and Writing Workshops will be in The Rectory building on the Community Center grounds, near the handicap parking spaces, a short distance from the Community Center.


All BookFest Gwinnett activities are free and open to the public!

If you’re also attending the Farmer’s Market that morning, commercial refrigeration units will be available at the market for you.


If you RSVP’d for the Welcome message (10:45 a.m.)/Kenny Leon keynote talk (11:00 a.m.) and/or the Tayari Jones talk at 5:00 p.m. on our Main Stage, please arrive at least 15 minutes before these sessions to guarantee you get a seat. Our RSVP list has exceeded the Ballroom capacity and it continues to grow; while we don’t want to turn anybody away, it might happen to latecomers for this first talk and final talk of the day.

If you registered for any of the Writing Workshops, we also recommend that you arrive 15 minutes early to guarantee you’ll have a seat.



Parking at the Community Center will fill up early and remain full all day, so please plan to park at one of the other free lots nearby in downtown Norcross. Clink this link for your options: Downtown Norcross Parking & Businesses Map
