FREE CONVERSATION TICKETS
Indoor Conversations require free tickets. The Conversations schedule will be posted on March 8.
There are two ways to get Conversation tickets:
Advance Conversation tickets will be available from this website starting April 3, 9 a.m. A $1 service fee applies to each ticket.
At the festival
A limited number of tickets for each Conversation is distributed at the festival ticketing booth on the day of the Conversation — free of service charges. The booth will open at 9 a.m. each day.
Guests with Conversation tickets must arrive 10 minutes before the scheduled Conversation start time to ensure seating.
Reserve up to eight Conversation tickets before they become available to the general public, receive two Book Prizes tickets, a festival poster and the opportunity to purchase valet parking before the general public.
