Great Talkeetna Festival of Books


The Great Talkeetna Festival of Books is the brainchild of the BGA - a group of Talkeetna residents who have given in to their obsession and geekery around all things literary.  The BGA is not officially affiliated with anyone.  We’re just book geeks.

Great Talkeetna Book Festival: Celebrating Banned Books

Book lovers of all ages are invited to attend the first annual Great Talkeetna Festival of Books. The festival will be held at various locations throughout downtown Talkeetna on the 8th of October and this year’s theme is Banned Books, though all books will be celebrated! We'll kick our festival off on October 7th with Peggy Shumaker, Alaska Writer's Laureate, who will host a workshop with the Talkeetna Elementary 3rd to 6th grade students. Find out more.
