2021 Festival Press Kit

The Festival has earned a reputation as a world-class literary event that brings together some of the most acclaimed authors from the Bay Area, nation, and world. Nine days of lively discussion, literary celebration, and fun activities for both adults and children offer a wealth of opportunities for media coverage.

We provide press passes to credentialed media. Our Festival Director and many of the presenters are available for interview. If you’d like to attend the Festival or need more information, please contact Julia Drake.
