Brown Brainy Brilliant Book Festival

May 7 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

We’re excited to announce the return of the Brown Brainy Brilliant Book Festival to the Garden!

This is an annual free literary event showcasing a diverse group of independently published authors from around the country—particularly those of color and from the LGBTQ community.

Meet the authors and enjoy book vendors, food, fun activities, and more! Although children’s literature is the main attraction, this event is open to various genres and is designed for readers of all ages in the surrounding community and Philadelphia area.

The aim of the Brown Brainy Brilliant Book Festival is to highlight familiar and emerging voices, and encourage reading and learning. See yourself in these stories!
