Every November, the Portland Book Festival brings more than 9,000 readers downtown to hear from more than 100 writers publishing across all genres in a one-day 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. Subscribe to our monthly e-news and continue to check online for the latest news.
