2020 Annapolis Book Festival Cancelled

Since it began 18 years ago, the Annapolis Book Festival has served as one of the region’s premier celebrations of the written word, bringing together countless authors for important discussions around a variety of topics. While we are incredibly saddened that this year’s Festival will not be taking place, we offer a heartfelt “thank you” to all of our volunteers, authors and sponsors who were instrumental in putting together what would've been our largest Festival ever.

Several Festival authors have sent special messages to the community as well as links to discussions and interviews they've done for their featured books. See what the Festival authors have to say!

About the Annapolis Book Festival

The Annapolis Book Festival is one of the premier community events in the region. Every year more than 3,000 people attend this free community Festival that celebrates the beauty, power, passion, and excitement of the written word. Entering its eighteenth year, the Festival brings nationally renowned authors to Key School in Annapolis, MD, to discuss their books and the craft of writing. The Festival also features children's activities, live music, refreshments, and new and used book sales.






For the second year in a row, the Annapolis Book Festival is teaming up with the Old Fox Books and Coffeehouse, a local bookstore located on Maryland Avenue, as the supplier for the 2020 Festival. It’s a great partnership!
