Deep Water 2024

The festival returns to Narrowsburg in June with a new take on a theme; ANOTHER EDEN will take us on deep dive into utopian communities, and the rich tapestry of ideas that have inspired idyllic societies. Through panels, readings, art, performance and community engagement, the festival will spotlight the intersections between utopian dreams, the nurturing solace of gardens and nature and the narratives that challenge and inspire us to envision a better world.

Confirmed guests include Jamaica Kincaid, Masha Gessen, Aaron Robertson, Matt Wolf, Cynthia Carr, Nell Painter and Curtis Zunigha/The Lenape Center.

Sign up for program announcements, and early access to tickets. We can’t wait to see you.

— Joyce Maynard
“An epic literary festival”
— The New York Times
"A destination festival that is pure joy and not to be missed."
