9th Annual Boston Book Festival

Join WBUR at the 9th Annual Boston Book Festival (BBF) in Copley Square. The Boston Book Festival celebrates the power of words to stimulate, agitate, unite, delight, and inspire by holding year-round events culminating in an annual, free Festival that promotes a culture of  reading and ideas and enhances the vibrancy of our city.

The festival kicks off in Copley Square on the evening of October 27, followed by a full line-up of panels, keynotes, readings, children’s activities and workshops on October 28. Be sure to stop by the WBUR booth to meet WBUR hosts and reporters who are moderating sessions throughout the festival and win great prizes!
