Local Author Festival Logo

To date, 80 authors have been part of this festival, including Archer Mayor, James Frey, audiobook reader Johnny Heller, and a host of local Connecticut and New England writing talent. Our attendance for this festival has been 497 people over 14 programs.  The series is framed by a kickoff event featuring a well-known author, and continues with genre nights that allow writers to share their work on Tuesday nights throughout the summer. The authors are selected from a survey that they complete during the early spring, inquiring about their book, genre, and public speaking experience.
