The 2022 Brattleboro Literary Festival is celebrating the 21st year with its first live and in person festival since 2019. Mason Engel is a writer and a filmmaker. In 2019, Mason took a road trip around the country to 50 independent bookstores in 50 days. His goal was to promote his self-published novel, 2084, but his conversations with booksellers shifted his focus.  On a second trip, he brought a cameraman along and asked booksellers a simple question: why should we shop indie? The resultant documentary, “The Bookstour”, premiered on public television this spring.  Mason works on his books–and bookish films–in Los Angeles.
