The Nantucket Book Festival invites everyone to the Sanctuary of the Unitarian Meeting House for our Opening Celebration, which extols the bond of literature and community to which our Festival is dedicated. Authors Ben Fountain, Madeline Miller, and Dave Cullen will share their motivation for writing our tumultuous times. We will also recognize the Island’s youth who show great promise as writers, and highlight the Young Writer Award, a perennial cornerstone of the Festival.
