Newburyport Literary Festival
From Breakfast with the Poets to Dinner with the Authors, this lively April event allows bibliophiles to interact with an impressive array of established writers in an intimate setting. In 2016, the roster included former Senator George Mitchell talking about his book “The Negotiator” and Anita Diamant speaking about the challenges of moving between fiction and nonfiction. Events have been known to sell out, so grab 2017 tickets early.
April 28-29, 2017, P.O. Box 268, Newburyport, 978-465-1257, newburyportliteraryfestival.org
