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.

Come see yourself in our stories!

Thank you to everyone that applied to be a part of our festival. We received almost 100 applicants and we have begun the selection process. Everyone that submitted an application with a contact email will receive a decision and next steps if accepted by March 1.
