A message from the Chair after Featherston Booktown Festival 2019
Kia ora koutou,
What a wonderful weekend of books, ideas, conversations, workshops, stories, provocation and inspiration at the 2019 Featherston Booktown Festival. We had 6,000 visitors, our 16 Booksellers did a roaring trade, every event was either sold out or close to. Thank you to all our wonderful writers and presenters, to our amazing volunteers, to the Booksellers, to our supporters and patrons, to the Featherston Booktown Board of Trustees - and to the Featherston community.
The photo above, taken by one of our volunteers, Ron Ainsbury, captures beautifully the spirit of Featherston Booktown. Thanks, Ron!

What's a Booktown?
Booktowns are an international phenomenon, celebrating books, from their stories through to their paper, glue and ink. Featherston is now a fully-fledged, internationally recognised Booktown.
