From Art Hop to poetry readings, guest artist presentations, special workshops, and themed exhibits, the KBAC presents a wide array of public events year round. The Illustrated Accordion, an exhibition of accordion style books has been attracting entries from book artists around the world since 2009. The Edible Book Festival, our annual April Fool’s Day event, invites the community to share intriguing and edible tributes to the book. Guest Artists present exhibitions, lectures and workshops by internationally known artists. Special Events celebrate the book arts with unique events and presentations. Our reading series, Poets in Print, holds five readings a year, each commemorated with letterpress broadsides.
