The 17th Annual Brattleboro Literary Festival

Bratt-Lit-Fest

The 2018 Festival will take place from October 11-14 with over 50 award-winning and emerging authors in venues across Downtown Brattleboro! All festival events are FREE and open to the public. There are no tickets, and seating is on a first-come basis. If you have any questions, please visit the Brattleboro Literary Festival headquarters in the Robert H. Gibson River Garden or check for details on our website at www.brattleboroliteraryfestival.org.

Festival-goers can enjoy the Festival Pop-Up Book Store and Marketplace & Café at the Robert H. Gibson River Garden! Take time and browse all of the authors’ books and pick up a signed copy of your favorites. It will be open from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm Saturday and Sunday. And, of course, Everyone’s Books will be selling author books at each and every event.

Though the Brattleboro Literary Festival is run entirely by volunteers, there are very real costs associated with its presentation. All events are free unless otherwise indicated, but whether you attend one or a dozen, we
ask that you make a donation of any size to the festival, either by cash or check, or you can donate online at our website. Donation boxes are located at all of the venues. Thanks so much to all of the donors, partners, and volunteers who help to make the Brattleboro Literary Festival a continued success!
