Celebration of Indie Bookstores-Mason Engel

118 Elliot 118 Elliot Brattleboro, Vt 05301

Mason Engel
The Bookstour

Mason Engel is a writer and a filmmaker. In 2019, Mason took a road trip around the country to 50 independent bookstores in 50 days. His goal was to promote his self-published novel, 2084, but his conversations with booksellers shifted his focus. 

On a second trip, he brought a cameraman along and asked booksellers a simple question: why should we shop indie? The resultant documentary, “The Bookstour”, premiered on public television this spring. 

Mason works on his books–and bookish films–in Los Angeles

Join us for a celebration of the return to a live festival! So much to rejoice and what better way to start than by celebrating indie bookstores. Mason Engel will screen his short documentary of interviews with booksellers around the country and discuss it with a panel booksellers. And local indie booksellers will be on hand with their offerings plus festival organizers! Refreshments will be served and we hope you can join us for this important event which is all  about books!
