2018 Day at the Capitol

Governor Phil Bryant, Lieutenant Governor Tate Reeves, Speaker Philip Gunn, as well as many others have been early supporters of the festival and we appreciate all they have done to help us shine a positive light on our state.
In anticipation of the festival and to continue promote our efforts, we will host a Day at the Capitol on March 22nd from 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. This event is for staff, board members, past panelists and those who love the book festival to share our enthusiasm with lawmakers and Capitol staff.

  • Thursday, March 22nd from 8:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
  • Mississippi State Capitol Building (400 High Street, Jackson, MS 39201)

While this event is open to the public, its purpose is strictly celebratory in nature and specifically for the Legislature. Want to help? Feel free to write or call your representative and senator and let them know how much you value the Mississippi Book Festival and perhaps share a positive example with them of your experience at the festival or comments you’ve heard around the region. Every voice and word counts!
