Our Vision

The Brown Brainy Brilliant Book Festival is an annual free literary event in Philadelphia, PA showcasing a diverse group of independently published authors--those of color and those from the LGBTQ+ community. The goal is to expose readers to familiar, emerging voices and encourage summer reading, learning, and wellness. This event will focus strongly on children’s literature but is open to books for various ages and genres. Readers of all ages are welcome.

We are very excited to present the first-ever Brown Brainy Brilliant Book Festival, hosted this year at the beautiful Bartram's Gardens in Philadelphia, PA


In order to put on a wonderful festival, we need fantastic authors and vendors like you! We are NOW accepting applications for author or vendor participation. If you're interested in taking part, please fill out the application found here: BBBBF2020


All selected participants will be notified by Feb. 14, 2020 and sent the next steps.
