Celebrate The Power Of Words

The Nantucket Book Foundation extends beyond its annual celebration of books, actively fostering a love for reading, writing, and storytelling throughout the year, both on and beyond Nantucket.

Our initiatives include the NBF Visiting Authors Program, ongoing collaborations with island schools, partnerships with local organizations, and our inaugural Children's Festival this September. These efforts collectively contribute to our mission of establishing Nantucket as a premier literary destination in New England.
