2017 Martha’s Vineyard Book Festival

WBUR is proud to be a media sponsor of the Martha’s Vineyard Book Festival. This free festival brings together a carefully selected group of authors for two days of readings, panel discussions, author interviews and book signings.

The festival takes place in two locations on the island. On Saturday, August 5, at the Harbor View Hotel in Edgartown, the festival features authors talking together in topical panel discussions. On Sunday, August 6, in tents on the grounds of the Chilmark Community Center in Chilmark, each author will have an individual discussion, often in an interview format, about his/her work.

Click here for more information on the author line-up and speaking schedule. Books for all featured titles will be available for sale at the festival by Bunch of Grapes Bookstore and authors will be signing their books following their speaking times.

Please follow our community rules when engaging in comment discussion on wbur.org.
