Save the Dates for Woodstock Bookfest: March 26-29, 2020

Before you know it, Woodstock Bookfest will be here! March is just around the corner. This early bird special is good until January 1st. Then the price goes up!


When Bookfest’s Martha Frankel and her friend Nancy Caigan went to find a “Woodstock snowglobe” they were shocked that such a thing didn’t exist. So they designed and manufactured these, with a replica of Woodstock’s town green.The perfect gift, the perfect desk accessory, the perfect reminder of our great small town, and a wonderful addition to your holiday shopping list!


Available in Woodstock at Woodstock Design, and in Boiceville at Fabulous Furniture.


The Joyous Lake was the hottest bar in Woodstock NY in the 70’s. Martha Frankel was the 22 year old cashier. Joyous Lake is the first in a series of her Woodstock Chapters.

The 2019 10th Anniversary Woodstock Bookfest was a divine occasion! From our opening night, a sold-out Story Slam (see videos) to the closing Memoir A Go-Go, we met new and familiar writers and friends, some true literary superstars like National Book Award winner Sigrid Nunez, Elizabeth Lesser, Joseph Luzzi, Jodie Patterson, and Jacki Lyden.


Thank you to all who came to support our lineup, and to those who send their support from all across the country.


We’ve got our dates for our next gathering: March 26-29, 2020. Circle those days on your calendar!


From March 26–March 29, 2020, we’ll host intensives, panels, keynotes, our infamous Story Slam, parties and more, all in the unique surroundings of Woodstock, New York.


Join us for the whole shebang, or just a panel or two – but please, join us!
