NEW BEDFORD, MA – The inaugural New Bedford Bookfest generated a huge amount of excitement and enthusiasm in the SouthCoast, Massachusetts region. Authors and patrons traveled to the city from Connecticut, Rhode Island, Cape Cod and Boston to participate.
Bookfest co-founder Sarah Athanas summed up the experience in a blog post which began, “People still love books. If you don’t believe me, you should have been at Groundwork! last weekend for the New Bedford Book Festival. An estimated 400 visitors came through our doors during Saturday and Sunday to meet local authors, listen to readings, and buy books.”
