Haystack Book Festival, a program of the Norfolk Foundation, will take place on Friday, October 1, Saturday, October 2, and Sunday, October 3. 

Writers in unmoderated conversations will explore topics such as “freedom in black and white,” “solitude, sociability, and poetry,” “hidden lives of ordinary things” among other thought provoking topics.

As an added bonus and to accommodate varying audiences, this year’s festival will feature three ways for you to participate:

  1. Live in-person @ the Norfolk Library* with 60 seats available
  2. In-person but live-streamed on the Norfolk Hub’s* large screen with 25 seats available
  3. Virtually live-streamed to watch from home.

*Proof of vaccination and face masks required to enter.
