Annapolis Book Festival 2023


The Annapolis Book Festival is celebrating 20 years bringing nationally renowned authors to the community to discuss their books and the craft of writing and featuring a day filled with children’s activities, live music, food, and a huge used book sale.

April 29th from 10am-5pm, the Festival is free and open to all and attendees are encouraged to make a day of it. It’s certain you’ll find something to appeal to everyone. If you need help deciding where to go or what to do, there will be dozens of volunteers on hand to answer questions and provide suggestions.

Food trucks will be on-site to provide refreshments. If you’re in the market for some new reading materials, don’t forget to browse the Scholastic and used book sales. And check out the raffle baskets for some incredible prizes!
