Photo Tim Ehrenberg with Brand New Nantucket Is there a better pairing than a great book and a beautiful beach? How about reading the work of your favorite author and sipping wine on a lovely island while chatting with writers? Consider the Nantucket Book Festival, the mid-June weekend-long event that draws world-renowned authors and up-and-coming writers alike to the streets, restaurants and meeting places of Nantucket for talks, panel discussions and even a bit of partying with the likes of Susan Orlean, Nathaniel Philbrick and Elin Hilderbrand. Icing on the cake — almost all the events that make up the festival are free. The Nantucket Book Festival was created by locals eight years ago as a way to extend the literary vibe Nantucket has long held dear. The island has been a place for poets and authors to seek inspiration. Some, like Hilderbrand and Philbrick, call it home. And across the small, beautiful island, locals love to not just read, but also talk literature. With the festival, the world is invited to join in. This year’s festival takes place June 14-16 and features over 40 special events, from author talks to dinners and cocktails with authors. “Nantucket has its own marvelous literary history,” said Maddie Hjulstrom, executive director of the festival. “It sounds cliche, but this really is a sort of magical place.” Particularly in mid-June. The weather is warmer then, but the large summer crowds have yet to peak. That means a day — or entire weekend — spend at the festival will feature meandering on less-crowded cobblestone streets, popping in shops and, of course, finding all sorts of festival events tucked into the coolest and most historical corners of Nantucket. Almost all the events take place in Nantucket’s main downtown area. The festival cleverly uses historic sites, like the opening night celebration held at Unitarian Universalist Meeting House (11 Orange St.), an exquisite and historic church building that seats about 400. Most of the events are free, with the exception of the ticketed breakfasts and lunches with select authors, the Sunday breakfast at the host hotel White Elephant (50 Easton St., and a festive gathering at Cisco Brewers (5 Bartlett Farm Road) for the authors and their fans. So how — and why — does the Nantucket Book Foundation, hosts of the event, keep things free? “It’s about accessibility,” said Hjulstrom. “We wanted to make it as easy as possible.” With a long list of celebrated authors, how can they do that? The authors attend for free, and are only given room and board for their weekend of work. “Location helps a lot,” Hjulstrom said. “We don’t pay the authors, but when we reach out to them, a weekend in June on Nantucket is definitely a draw.” As it is for book lovers as well. A complete lineup of authors is available at nantucketbookfestival.org/authors. And to get a feel for which of the newer or lesser-known authors you might want to check out, the festival launched a cool new addition this year: mini blogs by fans about why they enjoy certain authors. You can read those at nantucketbookfestival.org/advocates. The festival lasts all day and into the night (there’s even a wrap-the-night up cocktail event with authors called “Authors in Bars”), and spans many genres, from mystery to history, chick lit, non-fiction and more. The theme of this year’s opening celebration is “How can we write when everything is wrong?” which features three authors: Dave Cullen, who penned the best selling “Columbine” and more recently “Parkland: Birth of a Movement,” along with award-winners Ben Fountain and Madeline Miller. That night, local student winners of a writing contest (the theme: Who influences them the most) will read from their work and be honored. A local authors tent will be open as well, and there will be story time for kids in the fresh sea air. For more information on the event, including a list of authors and bios, schedule of events and ticket purchase information for the ticketed events, go to nantucketbookfestival.org. Organizers suggest you book your ferry ride and/or hotel accommodations well ahead of the event. The chance to meet Susan Orlean to talk about her most recent work, “The Library Book,” or ask how it felt to be portrayed by Meryl Streep is all just a ferry away.   .
