An Evolving Festival

BPL is excited about “Bentonville’s Fifth Annual Literature Festival: Turning the Page!”
BLF5 features festival events throughout the calendar year, highlighting authors and illustrators of books for all reading audiences – children, teens and adults.

This seasonal approach to our festival includes opportunities to meet creators of good books. Look for BLF5 to celebrate stories with special offerings incorporated into current library events, presentations of unique programs and collaborations with schools for author visits.

Watch for details as BPL announces BLF5 events this year! We invite readers of all ages to join us in turning the page by celebrating a new chapter of Bentonville’s Literature Festival.
