Provincetown, MA — Volunteers are needed to help out at the Provincetown Book Festival, Friday, September 13 – Sunday, September 15. Volunteers can sign up for as little as two hours, and be in the middle of an exciting literary event. All volunteers will receive a free Book Festival T-shirt. For more information, or to sign up, contact Nan Cinnater, Lead Librarian at the Provincetown Public Library, 508-487-7094 or [email protected].
The exciting literary lineup includes Andre Dubus III, Christopher Castellani, Jabari Asim and Kim McLarin. Details of the program are available on the website at https://provincetownbookfestival.org. Volunteers can hobnob with these and other authors in the green room (while also replenishing the coffee), take tickets, sell T-shirts and totes, or work at the giant outdoor book sale. There is a special need for a couple of moderately techie individuals who can hook up a microphone or run a video camera.
“The Provincetown Book Festival is sponsored by the Provincetown Library, but it is also very much a community effort,” said Nan Cinnater, Lead Librarian. The Festival is not only supported by major sponsors such as the Provincetown Tourism Fund, Friends of the Provincetown Library, Bay State Cruise Company and Cape Air, but also by bookstores, local B & B’s, and other small businesses. Not least of all, the Festival runs on book-loving and library-loving volunteers. “The need is greater than ever this year,” Cinnater said. “Come help out and have some fun.”
