About the Artist

The Deep Valley Book Festival gets its name from the setting of the beloved Betsy-Tacy children’s books written by Mankato-born author Maud Hart Lovelace. The Deep Valley Book Festival connects readers and writers in a celebration of literature and literacy. This FREE, 2-day, virtual, festival brings people together to celebrate our vibrant literary culture. The Deep Valley Book Festival features dozens of authors, illustrators, publishers, literary organizations, and hundreds of books! Visit with a favorite author or meet a new one, have your book signed, or listen to authors talk about their works. This FREE family event features a full weekend of programs, speakers, panel discussions, book giveaways, YWAC awards, and more. The Deep Valley Book Festival is organized by an all-volunteer committee of local writers, publishers, and book lovers.
