KEYNOTE SPEAKER: 

William Martin

New York Times Best-Selling Novelist

Across a career now in its fifth decade, William Martin has written twelve novels, an award-winning PBS documentary, book reviews, magazines articles, and a cult-classic horror movie, too. His first novel, Back Bay, spent fourteen weeks on the New York Times Best Seller List and established him as “a master storyteller.”.He’s been following the lives of the great and anonymous in American history ever since, taking readers from the Mayflower in Cape Cod to the White House Christmas celebration in December ’41 to the South Tower on 9/11 in City of Dreams. He has told big stories on broad canvases, so big that Publisher’s Weekly once called him “a writer whose smoothness matches his ambition,” and the Providence Journal dubbed him “king of the historical thriller.”

His work has garnered many awards, including the 2005 New England Book Award, given to an author “whose body of work stands as a significant contribution to the culture of the region”; the 2015 Samuel Eliot Morison Award; and the 2018 Robert B. Parker Award from the New England Chapter of the Mystery Writers of America. He lectures widely, has taught writing from Harvard to Hawaii, and serves on the boards of many of Boston’s historical and cultural institutions. He lives near Boston with his wife, has three grown children, and keeps a boat on Cape Cod Bay.
