The Inaugural Santa Fe Literary Festival

The Inaugural Santa Fe Literary Festival

For centuries, this maverick city at the edge of the Southern Rockies has been a cultural crossroads, from Native and Hispano peoples whose oral traditions root them in the landscape to a long line of writers whose work imagines and illuminates the American West and the wider world. What better place to bring together influential authors, thinkers, and passionate readers for an event as unique and inspiring as the city itself. Authors include: Sandra Cisneros, William DeBuys,John Grisham, Joy Harjo, Anne Hillerman, Asma Khan, Jon Krakauer, Deborah Madison, George R. R. Martin, and James McGrath Morris just to name a few.

The Santa Fe Literary Festival takes place over a long weekend – Friday, May 20, through Monday, May 23, 2022. Dozens of events will take place, from visionary keynote speeches by major literary figures to smaller, more intimate conversations with some of today’s most exciting international writing talents. There will be lunches with leading chefs and food writers, and opportunities to start the day with a morning meditation or guided tour around the historic streets of Santa Fe with an expert author.

Date: May 20-23, 2022

Location: The festival debuts at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center.
