The Festival

Fall for the Book is going virtual in 2020, bringing the festival to your fingertips! We’re elevating 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.

Climates of Change Exhibit

Climates of Change Digital Exhibit

Fall for the Book has partnered with ACM Hypertext 2020 to present a digital exhibition of electronic literature. The works respond to the overwhelming “climates of change,” with a particular emphasis on the ongoing environmental crisis. Thinking globally can be overwhelming: thus, this exhibition asks artists and viewers to engage with these global concerns through the lens of local and the personal. The exhibit features works that are brief and poetic; works that engage with moments and personal challenges; works that respond to local challenges and warnings for the future that is already here.
