Burlington Literary Festival

Booklovers and writers of all ages revelled in a month-long celebration of literature when BPL launched the 1st annual Burlington Literary Festival in November 2021. We and participating community partners welcomed authors, celebrated books, and (virtually) visited with local and national literary treasures. Nearly 1000 people registered to attend eight writing workshops, six author talks, and five literary presentations—making our inaugural festival a rousing success! Planning is in the works for another exciting Festival in November 2022. We're optimistically gearing up to host both in-person and virtual festival events this year.
