Boston Book Festival 2020

One of our peak fall experiences is participating in the Boston Book Festival, where you can usually find our sales tables in Emmanuel Church on Newbury St. We're all sad to miss the chance this year to see familiar faces and make new friends, but we are thrilled for the opportunity for people from around the globe to partake of the many wonderful author panels, discussions, and readings. Details of this year's festival are available at bostonbookfest.org and a full list of titles being presented is below. We hope to see you in person again next October!
