Since 2009, the Boston Book Festival has celebrated the power of the written word and brought world-class literary talent to Boston with its annual, free fall event. Now in its 10th year, the BBF will host its most exciting roster of literary luminaries yet, representing a range of genres including history, fiction, public affairs and children’s literature.

Things kick off on Tuesday, October 9, when the inaugural #BBFBookHunt will challenge eager readers to find books hidden across the city by following clues shared by @BostonBookFest on Twitter.

This year’s festival includes two must-see ticketed events, including a Friday, October 12 evening lecture with famed food activist Michael Pollan (How to Change Your Mind; The Omnivore’s Dilemma) and a Saturday, October 13 afternoon session with Pulitzer Prize–winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin (Leadership: In Turbulent Times) and former senator and secretary of state John Kerry, author of Every Day is Extra. Tickets for both events will be available in early September via the BBF website: https://bostonbookfest.org/

Boston Book Festival is also expanding to some of the most vibrant areas of the city with neighborhood festivals in East Boston and Roxbury. The full-day events will take place the same day as the Copley Square main stage event and are free and open to the public. Updates on the festival’s dynamic roster of over 200 authors can also be found on the BBF website or by calling (857)-259-6999.
