For all its history, lore, and natural splendor, Nantucket is most wonderful for the people who call it home and those they welcome to visit it. At the Nantucket Book Festival, all are welcome. You'll meet not only lovely locals but also discover artists of letters whose work will inspire you on Nantucket and beyond.
