NJ’s Premier Book Festival To Feature Nationally Acclaimed Authors
[drops]Morristown Festival of Books is thrilled to be featuring some of New Jersey’s hottest authors. The most recent addition to the already outstanding author lineup includes New York Times best-selling author and children’s book editor David Levithan of Hoboken, and formerly from Short Hills and graduate from Millburn High School and Brown University.
He is the acclaimed author of many books for young adults, such as including “Every Day, Hold Me Closer: The Tiny Cooper Story,” “Two Boys Kissing, Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist and Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares” (co-authored with Rachel Cohn), and “Will Grayson, Will Grayson,” (co-authored with John Green).
Levithan’s latest novel, “Another Day,” is the enthralling companion to his best-seller “Every Day.” This NJ author lineup will be sure to please a diverse audience including foodies, gardeners, bakers, and animal lovers.
The all-day free main festival takes place on Sat., Oct. 3. More than 25 award-winning and best-selling authors will speak and answer questions in one-hour sessions at five locales, all within walking distance of each other along South Street in historic Morristown, including St. Peter’s Church Sanctuary and Parish House, The Church of the Redeemer, the Morristown/Morris Township Library and the Starlight Room at the Mayo Performing Arts Center.
Book sales and signings will occur at a tent on the grounds of the historic Vail Mansion. The free all-day Sat. Festival is presented by Towne Toyota and Hyundai and Kim and Finn Wentworth. Morristown Festival of Books is a not-for-profit organization. For more information and full list of participating authors, go to https://morristownbooks.org.
