Preet Bharara: Morristown Festival of Books Keynote Speaker
100 South Street Morristown
What exactly is a Festival of Books?
Book festivals happen all over the world and can take many shapes and sizes. Our particular festival is wonderfully unique. (In fact, we’ve been hailed as “the best” and “truly outstanding” by authors, publishers, and delighted participants of all kinds but let’s keep that a little quiet so we don’t make other festivals jealous!)
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.
