Opening Night Celebration - Difference is What Unites Us:  Featuring Andrew Solomon, Imbolo Mbue and Min Jin Lee

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.  We ask our featured authors tonight to speak from their different perspectives, which each conveys so movingly in their written words, as we embrace the notion that we all share, in our individually diverse and imperfect ways, a common humanity. 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.
