Welcome to the Eastern Sierra Book Festival webpage. We’re glad you’re here.

The book festival is a one-day celebration of books, writing, reading, and publishing. It is held annually in July at the beautiful Mammoth Museum at Hayden Cabin in Mammoth Lakes, California, on the Eastside of the Sierra Nevada.

The date for 2020 is July 12, 2020. Mark your calendars!

The book festival opened in 2018 and grew significantly in 2019. It is sponsored by Whistling Rabbit Press and is hosted by the Southern Mono Historical Society. Book sales benefit the Mammoth Museum.


We’ve got plans to make the 2020 festival bigger and better than ever. We’ve got leads on a well-known science fiction writer, a children’s author with many books, and a workshop with a travel writer. Stay tuned..
