Festival of Books

Festival of Books, the annual extravaganza of all things literary, takes place over Labor Day weekend. The event features a giant used book sale, two days of readings and book signings by nationally known and local authors, a children’s program, and the Cookbook Café, serving fruit snacks, home-baked goodies, and our famous no-alarm vegetarian chili.

At the heart of the Festival is our annual book sale, one of the biggest in the region, offering more than 10,000 gently used books, including fiction and non-fiction, hard and soft cover —all at very affordable prices. Special sections included the Kid’s Corner for young readers; a media rack full of CDs, DVDs and audio books; art books; and a first-floor gallery featuring a handpicked selection of specialty books, limited editions, out-of-print books, and new books donated by leading national publishers.
