Bookworms rejoice! The fourth annual Bucks County will return to Doylestown on Friday, Sept. 24, through Sunday, Sept. 26.
The three-day celebration will feature published authors including New York Times bestseller Christina Baker Kline and Jason Reynolds. This year’s festival offers a new event, “Book Fest on the Green” on the grounds of the Mercer Museum, as well as the Book Fest favorite “Writers Workshop.”
“We’re back and bringing some amazing storytellers to Bucks County,” said festival founder Elle Green. “The ability to gather together again is incredible, and I hope everyone will come out to meet these authors and support Book Fest.”
The festival will begin with an in-person lecture at Salem United Church of Christ, 186 E. Court St, on Friday, Sept. 24, at 7 p.m., with Christina Baker, author of eight novels including The Exiles, Orphan Train, and A Piece of the World.
Later that evening, the Book Fest showcases a virtual keynote presentation with renowned Jason Reynolds, author of Ghost and All-American Boys. In addition to his many other accolades, Reynolds is a #1 New York Times bestselling author, a Newbery Award Honoree, a Printz Award Honoree, and a two-time National Book Award finalist. He’s also the 2020–2021 National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature.
