Virtual Boston Book Festival 2020

The Boston Book Festival and the Horn Book go way back. Since the festival began in 2009, the Horn Book has looked forward to our very favorite panel-going, booth-sitting, fresh-autumn-air-breathing, grilled-cheese-eating, Dunkin-drinking day. This year the BBF is going virtual, and the kids' and YA lineups are exceptional. Zetta Elliott; Jerry...
      

Boston Book Festival 2019

Cindy Ritter: I started off the morning setting up our booth. Two moments of pride: figuring out how to hang up our banner using some zip-tie chain-link magic; and discussing with passersby the 2019 Boston Globe-Horn Book Award–winning books we had on display, which I’d chosen this year with committee...
      

Boston Book Festival 2018 -- Happy with Horn Book-ers

We always enjoy attending the Boston Book Festival (and thank you to the Boston Globe for sponsoring our booth!).

The theme of the ninth annual Boston Book Festival was "Where We Find Ourselves."

Here are...

I hope to see some of you tomorrow, 11-5, at the Boston Book Festival. The Horn Book will be giving stuff (and opinions; I'm almost done with The Book of Dust) away at booth number 9 in Copley Square. We can see Roxy's Grilled Cheese (number 33) from our booth!...
      

Horn Book at Boston Book Festival 2016

Shoshana FlaxFor once, my Boston Book Festival experience began with a panel of adult authors. Robin Young moderated the kickoff panel Friday evening: “Storytelling for Page and Screen” with Emma Donoghue, Maria Semple, and Tom Perrotta. The authors shared their varied experiences of having their books made into movies (Donoghue’s...

An embarrassment of riches

I adore the Boston Book Festival. It’s a place to discover new authors. It’s a place to fawn over authors you already know all about. It’s a showcase of how books can be many things to many people, set against the backdrop of Copley Square in the fall. What’s not...
      

Boston Book Festival recap

Somewhere along those boundaries, Curious George and Llama Llama paraded around Copley Square; Gregory Maguire sang in character as Baba Yaga; and my eight-year-old self grinned like a fool at her copy of...
