The Warwick Literary Festival is a celebration of books, authors and reading. It is presented by the Albert Wisner Public Library in Warwick, NY, which was named Best Small Library in America 2016 by Library Journal.  Admission is free and the festival is open to the public.  2017 is the inaugural year of the Warwick Literary Festival.

Nine featured authors will speak about their craft and each presentation will be followed by a book signing. Several local published authors will also be present and available for conversation and book signing. All authors’ books will be available for purchase at the Festival and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Library. The Warwick Literary Festival’s official bookseller is Ye Olde Warwick Book Shoppe.

The Warwick Literary Festival is sponsored in part by generous gifts to the Albert Wisner Public Library Foundation.  In addition, this project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by Arts Mid-Hudson.
