Thank you for inquiring about our event series, Long Island LitFest.

Our mission is simple:  To bring together readers and writers and to provide best-selling authors with a forum for their works via talks and book signings. To date, we have featured special appearances by Jodi Picoult, Rachael Ray, Jennifer Weiner, Lee Child, Anna Quindlen, Nelson DeMille, Alan Zweibel, Lidia Bastianich, Wally Lamb, Alice Hoffman, Andre Aciman, Katy Tur and many other best-selling authors.

Long Island LitFest was founded in 2015 by the award-winning journalist and author, Claudia Gryvatz Copquin,  who produces all of the events under the LitFest banner.
