Boston Book Festival
The Berklee community reads music—and more. Berklee bands will take the stage at the Boston Book Festival in Copley Square on Saturday, October 16, 2010.
Seven student and alumni acts are slated to perform from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on the main outdoor stage: the jazz, pop, hip-hop, and r&b-inflected Berklee City Music All-Stars; Alicia Lemke, a singer-songwriter performing pop/rock; Berklee Performance and Slam Poetry; bluegrass performer Sierra Hull; alto saxophonist Hailey Niswanger; Berklee's first Spanish Presidential Scholar, Ariadna Riva; and Berklee students and alumni Eric Robertson and the Boston Boys.
This year's festival will feature more than 130 world-renowned authors and thought leaders including Nobel laureates, Pulitizer Prize winners, and more.
Unless otherwise noted, all festival events are free and open to the public with no reservations required.
