Annapolis Book Festival is going virtual in 2021!

The Annapolis Book Festival, one of the premier community events in the region, is going virtual in 2021 and expanding to three days--April 23, 24 & 25. Every year thousands of people enjoy this free community Festival that celebrates the beauty, power, passion, and excitement of the written word. The Festival is entering its eighteenth year, bringing nationally and internationally renowned authors to the community  to discuss their books and the craft of writing in a virtual way. 




The Annapolis Book Festival is again teaming up with the Old Fox Books and Coffeehouse, a local bookstore located on Maryland Avenue, as the supplier for the 2021 Festival. It’s a great partnership! View the list of Festival books here!

The Festival will be partnering with the Anne Arundel County Public Library to provide exciting, educational and fun activities and programming for children.
