Books and Art for the Next Generation

Ages 13-18 | On October 6, 2019, Knox County Public Library’s LitUp Festival will illuminate downtown Knoxville with a full day of activities and events exploring creativity and critical thinking. Together, we will:

  • Illuminate creativity and self-expression through great literature, writing, and art 
  • Ignite enthusiasm for civility and critical thinking through teen-led conversations
  • Kindle practical life skills and explore college options

With programming developed in part by an advisory board of local teens, LitUp will feature author talks, writing workshops, poetry slams, and plenty more.

Author Submission Form and Vendor Registration coming soon!

Special thanks to Mid-Continent Public Library's original LitUp Festival, which inspired Knox County Public Library to spread the event to East Tennessee!
