A Note from the Chair

There’s been a change at the Festival we’d like to share. After years of hard work and outstanding leadership, Bob Whitelaw has stepped down as chairman of the board of directors. We’d like to thank Bob for all his efforts, which have been exemplary. Under his guidance the Festival continued to grow and make itself known, and to provide the people of the South Shore–and our visitors and guests–with a unique combination of world-class literary events and small-town hospitality.

At our annual general meeting on October 29, 2013, I was elected as the new chair of the Festival. As a frequent ticketholder and occasional reader, I am delighted to have this opportunity to give something back to the annual event that has enriched our lives so much. The 2014 season will be better than ever, so please watch this space for news of upcoming readers.

See you in 2014!
