The Fall New Bedford Book Festival is free and open to the public. It will take place Saturday, Oct. 15 and Sunday, Oct. 16, 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. each day.
Over 40 local and regional authors will be presenting and discussing their books at Groundwork!, New Bedford’s first co-working facility at 1213 Purchase Street, New Bedford, MA.
Come each day or both and spend the afternoon; Destination Soups will be in the kitchen with their signature soups and sandwiches and many of the authors will be reading from their work in a special reading room. A dedicated children’s books area will welcome parents, students and teachers. Author/Publisher Nick LeBlanc of Domesticated Primate and artist Meaggsy Bogues are creating a special story-telling audio/visual installation for the weekend which will run continuously.
And we’re very pleased to host a special guest, Standard-Times BookLovers columnist Lauren Daley for a Question & Answer hour beginning at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 16.
