Provincetown Book Festival

The fourth annual Provincetown Book Festival comprises three days of literary events for readers, writers, and book lovers of all kinds. All events are free and open to the public.

Headlining the 2019 Festival is a conversation between Christopher Castellani and Andre Dubus III, scheduled for 4:30 on Saturday, September 14. The Provincetown Book Festival opens on Friday night, September 13, with a reading and reception for the recipient of the Rose Dorothea Award, given annually by the Board of Library Trustees to an outstanding author from or influenced by the Outer Cape. The 2019 recipient has yet to be chosen.

On Saturday and Sunday, there will be a giant book sale on the library lawn. On Saturday at 9:00, six local authors will read from their work in “Reading Local,” a special program curated by members of the Festival Advisory Committee. This will be followed by a session on New Writing for New Media, with Instagram artist Trent Preszler and podcast writer Helen Ellis.

A full schedule of the weekend is on the festival website’s events page.
