The Chilmark Town Affairs Council, partnering with Bunch of Grapes Bookstore, is proud to host the Martha’s Vineyard Book Festival. Held every other summer since 2005, the festival celebrates the island’s rich literary heritage and the joy of reading.
With two days in two locations, the festival is bigger and better than ever making it a true island-wide event.
Over 30 nationally acclaimed authors will speak about their books on Saturday and Sunday. The schedule will be posted here several weeks prior to the festival. Most authors will be speaking in both locations. Authors will read from their books, participate in discussion panels, and sign their books. The festival is FREE and open to all.
