Calling all readers and writers, story-tellers, poets, students, playwrights, performers, bookworms, intellectuals, library-goers, bookstore-browsers, open-mic enthusiasts, and lovers of literature of all kinds!
On Saturday, October 15, the Boston Book Festival is bringing over 100 world-renowned authors and presenters, as well as costume characters, performers, craftspeople, and vendors, to Copley Square for a full-day celebration of the importance, as well as the pure joy, of the written word in its many forms.
You definitely want to be there. Even better, you could be part of the team that brings it all together!
The Boston Book Festival depends on the volunteer efforts of dedicated and enthusiastic literary advocates, such as yourself, to help everything run smoothly. Volunteers do things like answer questions, help festival-goers find their next session, facilitate events and book-signings, and work at the merchandise booth. A volunteer shift is four hours long, and the rest of the day you are free to enjoy the festival!
Prior to volunteering, you will attend one of the scheduled two-hour training sessions that will take place at different times in the two weeks leading up to the event. While volunteering for a great event like this is surely its own reward, your involvement will also earn you a delicious lunch and a cool Boston Book Festival volunteer T-shirt.
Please pass this information along to anyone you know who might be interested in volunteering. All are welcome, and the more the merrier! This year's festival is going to be bigger and better than ever, so don't miss the opportunity to be part of the team!
