The 2021 Maplewood South Orange Book Festival will be held on Saturday, September 25th and Sunday September 26th at the Woodland in Maplewood. We are hoping to hold the festival in-person. Of course, that is all dependent on COVID rates. Our number one goal is to keep all authors and attendees safe. Please check back for updates.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 MAPSO Book Festival was an all-virtual affair. Instead of having a weekend of events, the festival was spread out over thirty days during the month of October. Our featured authors included Isabel Wilkerson, Paul Krugman, Ruth Reichl, Colum McCann, Christina Baker Kline, Kimberly McCreight, Abby Sher, Mary Beth Keane, Amity Gaige, Jesse Wegman, Marcy Dermansky, Laura Sims, Paola Mendoza, Tracey West, David Kelly, Laura Shovan, Ismée Williams, Jill Twiss, Jennifer Voigt Kaplan and Brigit Young.
The fifth annual festival will be held in September 2021. Please check this page, as well as our social media, for more details! Stay safe!
