2022 History Book Festival

September 23rd, 2022 - 9:00 am to September 25th, 2022 - 5:00 pm

After two years of very successful and well-attended Zoom events, the History Book Festival is proud to announce the return to an in-person, weekend format in Lewes! The 2022 festival, set for September 23, 24, and 25, will offer a broad range of historical fiction and narrative nonfiction by both well-known and emerging authors.

We are also pleased to announce the return of our presenting sponsors, Delaware Humanities and The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices I Gallo Realty. Because of their support, as well as the generosity of other funding partners and donors, we are able to offer the bulk of this festival free-of-charge to attendees.

Thanks also to our community partners for their continuing support: the Lewes Public Library, in conjunction with the Delaware Division of Libraries and Sussex County Libraries, for event promotion and venue; Browseabout Books in Rehoboth Beach, official bookseller of the History Book Festival; and the Cape Gazette, our media partner.

More information about festival authors and events will be announced in this newsletter and on our website and social media as it becomes available.

Please mark your calendar and plan to join us in Lewes on September 23, 24, and 25 for the 2022 History Book Festival. We look forward to seeing you then!
