Due to COVID-19, the 7th annual Morristown Festival of Books slated for October 9 & 10, 2020 will not be held.

We know this is the right step to help keep everyone safe. The Festival is grateful for the support and generosity of our sponsors, donors, and community partners who dedicate their time and resources to making the Festival happen.

We look forward to continuing our partnership as we plan and create our next Festival for October 8 & 9, 2021. Thank you for your support!
