Book the date! The 17th annual Collingswood Book Festival is set for Saturday, October 5, 2019. As in past years, readers and writers will converge in Collingswood to celebrate literacy. It’s an opportunity for nationally-recognized authors to meet their fans, and for fans to listen to their favorite authors. More than six blocks of Haddon Avenue will be filled with exhibitors, booksellers, storytellers, poetry readings, workshops, and performers. All events are free.
This year, the Poetry Tent at the Collingswood Book Festival will mark its fifteenth year with a celebration of Walt Whitman’s 200th birthday, and will be joined by as many local poetry groups as can possibly fit in the event area. To whet poetry lovers’ appetites, there will be a pre-Fest evening of workshops and poetry talks at the library. The date of the pre-Fest evening will be announced in the coming weeks, as will the theme of the Youth Poetry Contest.
