The Unbound Book Festival takes place every April in Columbia, MO. Nationally-recognized and bestselling authors and poets come to discuss their work and participate in a variety of interactive programs. There are no other literary festivals in Missouri of the national scope and ambition of the Unbound Book Festival. Plus, we are 100% volunteer run--by the community, for the community!
We believe that books should be for everyone. We will raise awareness of the literary arts, celebrate books, and encourage a love of reading for all ages - and the festival is completely free to the public.
