View our 2016 MV Author Series promo video


The Martha's Vineyard Book Festival and Author Series are held in alternating years.  In the summer of 2015, we held the sixth Martha's Vineyard Book Festival.  In the summer of 2016, we will hold the Martha's Vineyard Author Series.  The series is held on Thursday and some Sunday nights throughout the summer and will feature seven evening discussions all at the Chilmark Community Center in the rural up-island town of Chilmark on the island of Martha's Vineyard.  The Author Series is presented under the auspices of the Chilmark Town Affairs Council.  

The Author Series and Book Festival both celebrate the rich literary heritage of Martha’s Vineyard and the many authors who find inspiration on this beautiful island. The Author Series provides the opportunity for authors and readers to meet, to engage with one another in a relaxed and beautiful setting and to allow each to find new meaning in their work and discover new works. 

The 2017 MV Book Festival will be held on Saturday, August 5 and Sunday, August 6, 2017.  More details will be available at this site in the fall of 2016.
