AMERICAN DIRT AUTHOR JEANINE CUMMINS CANCELS APPEARANCE AT THE 2020 SAVANNAH BOOK FESTIVAL

Savannah Book Festival has been notified by the publisher of the controversial #1 best-selling book American Dirt that author Jeanine Cummins will not be appearing at the 13th Annual Savannah Book Festival.

SBF was very disappointed to learn about the cancellation of the tour, and while we understand the rationale behind the publisher’s decision, we continue to have discussions in an attempt to get the author to make an exception in the case of the book festival. If we are unsuccessful in our efforts, we are looking into ways to present a 60-minute video of an earlier appearance made by the author at an independent bookstore event.

*** Due to developer changes, there will be a new app for 2020.  Please note, the current SBF app from 2019 will not be updated with 2020 information.  You will need to download a new SBF app for 2020.
