Despite this historic pandemic, we are committed to presenting a literary event that celebrates big ideas, civic engagement, and the power of books to inform, challenge, inspire, and delight, and that brings authors and readers together to promote life-long reading and literacy.

We will continue to monitor health and government officials for guidance on in-person events. In the meantime be sure to follow us on social media and join our email list for more information about the 2021 Festival and upcoming SBF Online virtual events.

The Saratoga Book Festival is planning to present between 12-16 sessions featuring published 
authors whose books are published within the twelve (12) months preceding the Festival. All authors who are invited to participate will be featured in at least one panel or solo session; the Festival does not feature authors for book signings only.
