Harbor Springs Festival of the Book
The mission of the Harbor Springs Festival of the Book is to inspire readers of all ages and to celebrate the culture of books in a beautiful part of the world. We make that happen by hosting a signature three-day Festival the last full weekend in September in venues all throughout downtown Harbor Springs in addition to year-round programming. Our Festival features 50+ traditionally published authors/illustrators in eight different genres. During the Festival weekend, most of the 30+ scheduled sessions are free to the general public. Our Authors in Schools program, also during the Festival weekend, hosts 20+ authors in 40+ sessions in seven area school districts. Distribution of free books to area students is made possible by donations to our Books for Schools fund.
