GREATER DES MOINES, IA (Nov. 1, 2021) – Save the date for the 2022 DSM Book Festival scheduled for Saturday, March 26.

Local authors, illustrators and publishers looking for ways to reach new audiences are encouraged to apply to promote their work and be part of The Festival. The DSM Book Festival is offering an opportunity for selected authors and illustrators to promote themselves and their latest work. Those interested may apply online through Sunday, Jan. 16.

“We are excited to once again host the DSM Book Festival to celebrate local writers and hear from successful national keynote authors,” said Colleen Murphy, Downtown Events Director at the Greater Des Moines Partnership. “We encourage Greater Des Moines residents to save the date as they will not want to miss out on this vibrant festival in March.”
