16th Annual Kerrytown Bookfest

The Kerrytown BookFest is held each September and is a celebration of books, those who create them and those who read them. Our primary goal is to highlight our area’s rich heritage in the book and printing arts and showcase local individuals, businesses, and organizations. The day will be filled with entertainment, education, and hands-on experiences.

At the Kerrytown 2018 BookFest in Ann Arbor, Jean Alicia Elster will be a guest speaker on a middle grade authors panel—moderated by author Shutta Crum—with fellow-youth lit writers Ruth Behar and Jack Cheng. For more information and updates, click here. www.kerrytownbookfest.org
