The Las Vegas Poets Organization in conjunction with Nevada Humanities is scheduled to present poetry at the next Vegas Valley Book Festival on Saturday, October 21, 2017.
The Vegas Valley Book Festival, now in its sixteenth year, is a celebration of the written, spoken, and illustrated word. The festival has networked together a community-wide consortium of cultural organizations and sponsors to offer “a one-stop shopping experience for literature” through a wide range of programs built around sharing resources, developing audiences, advancing the craft of writing, and sharing the joys of reading. This annual festival is the largest literary event in Nevada, drawing more than 10,000 attendees during the season. Since its founding in 2002, the festival has presented over 800 authors and speakers and has produced or sponsored over 500 events, sessions, readings, workshops, and book signings. The festival is free and open to the public.
The Las Vegas Poets Organization is the first and longest running non-profit organization for poetry in Las Vegas and Nevada. With an official membership and special events and programming throughout the year.
Our partnerships include Nevada Humanities, AIGA Las Vegas and Clark County.
Our Pop-Up Poetry Feature Series at Nevada Humanities runs from February — June every year.
This will mark our 6th year featuring at Vegas Valley Book Festival.
