Boston Book Fest 2021 Announces Headliners


Now announcing the 2021 Boston Book Festival Headliners! For our thirteenth annual Festival, we’re bringing together authors, artists, poets, and scholars to examine the issues of today — racial justice, COVID-19, the environment — through the lens of literature, art, and science. Their words, ideas, and images also explore identity, memory, family history, and the connections that exist between us.

Join headliners Mateo Askaripour, Nicholas A. Christakis, Alyssa Cole, Laurie David, Anita Diamant, Annette Gordon-Reed, Zakiya Dalila Harris, Ekua Holmes, George M. Johnson, Kekla Magoon, Tiya Miles, Tamara Payne, Nate Powell, Lucinda Roy, Clint Smith, Tracy K. Smith, and Tricia Elam Walker at our 2021 Boston Book Festival on October 16-23, held virtually. Visit our website for more information on our headliners and their work, and look for our full schedule of sessions and presenters soon: bostonbookfest.org/festival/presenters
