This weekend, the Martha’s Vineyard Book Festival takes place in the island towns of Edgartown and Chilmark, Massachusetts.

Here & Now co-host Jeremy Hobson sits down in front of Bunch of Grapes Bookstore with two writers, Ward Just and Laura Wainwright, who both make the Vineyard their home year-round.

They talk about the distractions of being in a place that’s a tourist haven three months of the year, as well as the beauties of living on the island.
