History Book Festival
September 23 - September 25
Following two years of virtual programs necessitated by the COVID pandemic, the History Book Festival plans to resume live presentations with some 20 distinguished authors of historical nonfiction and fiction works. The Festival, the first and only event of its kind in the United States devoted solely to history, will be from September 23 to 25 in Lewes, DE.
The 2022 Festival roster includes Pulitzer Prize winners and New York Times best-selling authors, as well as promising new writers. Books include biographies and topics ranging from politics and world history to exercise, medicine and music. The Festival begins on September 23 with a keynote presentation and concludes on September 25 with a closing address. Throughout the day on September 24, authors will discuss their books at venues in historic Lewes. All events except for the keynote and closing speakers are free; seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. For the complete author lineup, click here.
With the help of our presenting sponsors — Delaware Humanities and The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices I Gallo Realty — as well as our community partners and volunteers, the 2022 History Book Festival is able to offer the bulk of this festival free-of-charge to attendees. Please join us in Lewes on September 23, 24, and 25 to discover a broad range of historical fiction and narrative nonfiction by both well-known and emerging authors.
