The inevitable signs of fall in Boston: Leaves yellowing, chill evenings, and the familiar rows of tents lining Copley Square, noticeably lively as you come up out of the T stop or walk down Boylston. It’s the Boston Book Festival street fair, filled with exhibitors ready to sell you some books, chat with you about their literary magazine, give you some information on how to be a better writer, or ready to engage the kids with a fun activity.
We’ll get back there eventually. This year, with our focus on keeping our audience safe and healthy, we’ve moved not only most of our Boston Book Festival sessions online, but we’ve moved our street fair online, too, to our Virtual Marketplace.
There, you can browse the virtual tables of over three dozen exhibitors, find out more about their programs or offerings, and pick up a new book or two. This year we’re joined by literary magazines, author and editor organizations, local arts organizations, small publishers, MFA and graduate programs, and more. Some are even offering discounts or special offers for Boston Book Festival visitors.
Visit our Virtual Marketplace to support local and global literary—and literary-adjacent—organizations today!
