Every November, the Portland Book Festival brings more than 9,000 readers together to hear from more than 100 writers publishing across all genres in an intergenerational celebration of books and stories. 

This year’s Festival will take place online: November 5—21, 2020.

The digital festival will feature author events for all ages, pop-up readings, and writing classes.

The full schedule of 2020 virtual Portland Book Festival events will be released in October. Subscribe to our monthly e-news and continue to check online for the latest news.
