The Charleston Literary Festival, formerly ‘Charleston to Charleston,’ takes place each November at various venues in Charleston and will be presented both in-person and virtually. It offers the opportunity to engage with renowned authors, in an appealing setting, and to contribute to conversations that revolve around outstanding books, ideas, and stories that illuminate the human condition.

Since its first appearance in 2017, the Festival has established a reputation for presenting exceptional speakers from diverse backgrounds in intimate contexts: Pulitzer, Booker and Nobel prize-winners, regularly cited in books-of-the-year lists.
