Welcome! The Eastern Sierra Book Festival is for everyone who loves books: readers, writers, publishers, but especially for authors, those special people who put such effort into their books, often for little reward or recognition. So, the festival is our chance to celebrate you!

[With regards to selling your books, you set the price, and 60% of the retail price goes back to you. The other 40% will benefit the Southern Mono Historical Society. Unsold copies are returned to you.]


The Mammoth Creek Inn is offering a 15% discount to festival attendees. This is a lovely inn right on Mammoth Creek across from the Hayden Cabin, the site of the festival. Book online at or call 760-934-6162 or 866-466-7000. Use the code ESBF.

There is also a studio and one-bedroom apartment available through Cerro Coso College. Prices are $60 or $80 per night plus one-time $50 cleaning fee and 14% TOT tax. Both have kitchen facilities though kitchen supplies are limited. Contact Brett Barker (number and email address available upon request). Not available in 2024.

The Eastern Sierra Book Festival is sponsored by Whistling Rabbit Press and hosted by the Southern Mono Historical Society.
