The South Dakota Humanities Council's annual South Dakota Festival of Books unites readers and writers with presentations, autograph sessions, poetry readings and more. Now in its 15th year, the Festival of Books is the state's premier literary event, having featured authors such as National Book Award winners Louise Erdrich and Michael Dirda, former U.S. Poet Laureate Ted Kooser, and Newbery Medal-winning children's author Kate DiCamillo. The event is held annually on alternating sides of the state.
