Welcome to the Concord Festival of Authors

The 22nd annual Concord Festival of Authors will open on Thursday evening, October 16th and run through Sunday, November 2nd. With events nearly every day or evening, there’s something for everyone—Breakfast with the Authors, New Literary Voices, Mystery and True Crime, talks by David McCullough Jr. and Tomie dePaola, panel discussions, and more. Except for the Breakfast with the Authors program and the Ruth Ratner Miller Award presentation to Nathaniel Philbrick, all events are free and open to the public. As always, we beat the drum in celebration of the written and spoken word.
