Welcome to

Pennyworth Books is the King of Book Festivals. We are a nationally recognized brand, and a literary event staple since 2004. Our price and selections simply cannot be beat. All of our books are brand new, and offered at one very low price for your shopping convenience. We are the only book seller who exhibits around the country and sets up a pop-up shop for the weekend.

2017 was our best year in business to date. At all of the major book festivals, we have several setups, operating under unique brands, strategically spread throughout the event. We were able to give away over 5,000 brand new books through our volunteer program. We have continued to expand into the exciting world of Comic Cons. The combination of a passionate customer base with other professional traveling sellers and their respective products, plus the added bonus of being indoors, proved to be a source of excellent growth.

In 2018, we look forward to adding a few new book festivals, and returning to some Comic Cons that were previously impossible due to conflicting dates and already being spread thin.

Since we are mainly a mobile book dealer, all of our energy is focused on being the absolute best. Our signature custom shelving makes browsing our selections a breeze. Even in the age of electronic readers, our business is booming, largely in part to our extreme value.

We attend the nation's largest book festivals--ones attened by more than 70,000 people, namely Printer's Row Lit Fest in Chicago IL, The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, The Decatur Book Festival just outside of Atlanta, The Baltimore Book Festival, The Tucson Festival of Books in Arizona, The Bay Area Book Festival in San Francisco, The Texas Book Festival in Austin Texas, The Miami International Book Fair, and The Southern Festival of the Humanities in Nashville TN.

We love interacting with the crowds and do our best to give each and every visitor a fun and memorable experience, whether or not they make a purchase.

In all, our yearly exposure is to over three million customers. Please view our Festival Schedule to see where we will be next. Our road map is planned so 2018 will assuredly be our busiest year ever!

In the year ahead, our plans for expansion include running book fairs at area grammar schools, exhibiting at some neighboring state fairs, and scaling into other major cities with our road crew team. We also plan on increasing the number of events in our local area, which will help raise brand awareness for our first fixed retail location, coming in the second half of the year. PHEW!

Our Merchandise

All of our books are brand new. Each book is inspected for quality before the festival. We carefully hand pick recent best sellers, popular authors, riveting fiction, and non-fiction books, plus a wide variety of selections in the history, biography, cooking, and musical categories. And don't forget childrens' books; your child will immediately fall in love with a stack too big for them to carry, when they browse our interactive offerings. Our stock is unique to each city and is never the same from year to year, or event to event.

Finding authors such as Bill Bryson, Kurt Vonnegut, Lee Child, Douglas Adams, Toni Morrison, Truman Capote, Albert Camus, and Chuck Palahniuk are common, along with the occaisonal surprise autographed book, at no additional charges.

We always try to bring book sets like the Game of Thrones Series, a colorful spread of Garfield 3 in 1 Comics, plus the Batman and Superman Encyclopedia guides.

Our most requested section each year is cooking. We will have at least two full shelving units packed with cookbooks. Most of our selections sell out, so if you see a 'must-have,' be sure snap it up before you explore the rest of the festival. Plus, we always save new items to display on the second and third days of the event.

Our advice: Come early for the best selection, browse the rest of the vendors, and stop back at our booth again before you leave. You just might find an unbelievable deal!


We are happy to accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, Personal Checks, and cash. All credit cards will be charged at our booth during the festival. Orders paid for with Personal Checks require proper identication.
