When was the last time you’ve attended a book festival? Was it many months ago? Or was it a year ago? There is no question that 2020 played a huge role to why you haven’t attended a book fair. Last year was unprecedented and the outlook for 2021 also remains uncertain. Millions of plans and even entire lives was altered because of the global pandemic. The uncertainty brought about by this has driven a lot of fairs to cancel, discontinued, or have contingency plans just to get the showing going. Some of our beloved book festivals even have to postpone their events for the safety of everyone involved.

The coronavirus pandemic has left the world in a state of anxiety; however, we are slowly adjusting to the new normal. You may not see it, but many are getting the show on the road to finally bring back the things we used to enjoy. Things such as attending book festivals from all around the world. Due to the newly implemented rules and limited attendances, many book fairs are being hosted online. These book fairs are going virtual to reach anyone from anywhere, even in their humble abodes. A bunch of major book fairs is back, and brand new literary events are coming your way, in particular The Festival of Storytellers scheduled from April 23rd to April 25th and April 30th to May 2nd 2021.

The Festival of Storytellers is the first-ever online book festival hosted by self-publishing company, ReadersMagnet, to celebrate the many storytellers who never ceased to stop writing in a time of anxiousness and confusion. These authors and books have become a safety net for many book lovers out there. This six-day event is a good thing for both bibliophiles and authors as somehow this is still a way for them to enjoy the year. However, you might be wondering why you must attend this festival when there are other major literary events forthcoming. Here’s a couple of reasons that will convince you to attend this important milestone:

For new authors in the industry, attending a book fair is good for your reputation and book promotions.

Fuel Passion for Literature

The past year has left everyone passionless and lackluster. And book festivals seem to be the source of joy to many book lovers across the globe. Just like how books bring boundless magic, infinite possibility, and endless excitement, TFOS 2021 will bring back passion to your bones and invigorate your life with literature.

Storytelling is an ancient art that has evolved over time, from campfires to bedtime. Literature encompasses all unsaid and ethereal things— even all states of sensation of pain, love, joy, curiosity, suffering, and pride. However, only a few understood the importance of literacy, but this is something you should give up. A few trips to the library and participation in The Festival of Storytellers will truly give you direction and definition in life. This event will prove that literature itself will teach you so much about life.
