Local Author Festival

Since Summer 2014, this festival has featured writers from New England and the tri-state area who share their work, inspiration, and ideas with our audience. Throughout the pandemic we have hosted Kirstin Harmel, Spencer Quinn, Gail Tsukiyama, Kristy Harvey, and Bill Hayes! Previous summers have included the talents of Ann Leary, Matthew Dicks, Kristan Higgins, James Frey, Adriana Trigiani, and Andrew Gross, Archer Mayor, and many more.

We enjoyed our 2021 Festival, Authors in AFPL Getting Coffee via Zoom.

Inspired by Jerry Seinfield’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, this series featured panel discussions, one-on-one author interviews, and, of course, COFFEE! Virtual events ran from June–August of 2021.

Here are a few upcoming author events while we countdown to summer 2022:
