What happens at the Morristown Festival of Books?
- In-person talks by more than 50 world-class authors, representing every imaginable genre, including Pulitzer Prize winners, Caldecott medalists, New York Times chart toppers, and more.
- Book signings by these wonderful authors: yes, you can meet your literary idol!
- Brand-new, beautiful books for purchase (and then signed, and possibly selfied with, as noted above).
- Discussion, insight, laughter, snacks, book-loving camaraderie, tote-bag-strapitis.
All of this is open to the public and, aside from select ticketed talks, free of charge. It’s an annual two-day event that takes place each autumn. The opening night is a ticketed Keynote Event featuring one (or sometimes a pair of) amazing headline speaker. The Main Festival takes place all day on Saturday (10 a.m. – 5 p.m.), rain or shine, at several beautiful locations in the heart of historic downtown Morristown, NJ. There are plenty of red-shirted volunteers to direct you once you arrive.
