Bookstock 2018, Woodstock's annual literary festival, is celebrating its 10th consecutive year July 27 to 29 with a superlative array of prominent authors, artists, performers, and teachers.

Headliners of this 10th edition include Richard Russo, Robert Pinsky, Alexander Chee, and Ezzedine Choukri Fishere.

Besides its 30+ presenters, Bookstock includes a huge used book sale and a vintage book sale. Publishers and authors gather in a spacious tent to display their publications and talk to participants about their work.
