2020 DSM Book Festival canceled

The DSM Book Festival team is closely monitoring the changing developments of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and its impact on our region. Following the example set by major national events, we are canceling the 2020 Festival.

All guests who purchased a VIP or workshop ticket will be issued a full refund in the next 30 days.

Our story will continue. We appreciate your patience as we work through the details and the impact of these changes. We hope you'll bookmark your calendar for our next chapter — March 27, 2021.
