After having to cancel last year’s festival because of Covid-19, we are pleased to announce the 2021 New Providence Book Festival will take place on Saturday, September 18, 2021, 9am – 3pm. Organizers expect to make this their best festival yet!
Many book festivals normally scheduled have still not announced plans to return. Other reopening festivals include the Collingswood Book Festival and the Morristown Festival of Books.
“One advantage we have,” said J.R. Bale, the festival’s manager, “is that this is an outdoor event. It always has been. Even if Covid has not completely subsided, we can implement social distancing protocols.”
The New Providence Book Festival will take place on the grounds of the Salt Box Museum at 1350 Springfield Avenue, New Providence, NJ 07974. The rain date is September 25th. The Book Lovers Dispatch is a sponsor of the New Providence Book Festival. Learn more at NewProvidenceBookFestival.com.
