Fall for the Book went virtual in 2020, bringing the festival to your fingertips- and we’re back in 2021! We’ve elevated our status quo to “on demand”; now you can settle in with your kids to watch a live, interactive event, or get a front row seat to a talk with a writer who lives half world away; no plane ticket required.
New American Voices Award
Fall for the Book and the Institute for Immigration Research’s New American Voices Award recognizes recently published works that illuminate the complexity of the human experience as told by immigrants, whose work is historically underrepresented in writing and publishing.
