Nantucket Book Foundation
The Nantucket Book Festival is a 501 c(3) non-profit organization founded to celebrate and promote the joys and rewards of reading, writing, and literacy. The organization is comprised of a volunteer board of directors, as well as two paid, part-time sub-contractors. The organization endeavors to partner with other non-profits, publications, media, businesses, schools, underwriters and individuals to present an annual quality program that honors national, regional and local authors and the rich culture of the written word, ideas, and the imagination. The festival seeks to benefit the breadth of the community by hosting a variety of events, including author readings and presentations, panel discussions, book signings, workshops, writing competitions, school programs, gatherings and conversations, as well as incorporating other allied arts and entertainment.
