Local Author Festival

Our applications for Summer 2018 have just closed! Our summer 2018 lineup will be announced soon.

The theme for this year’s festival is Inspiration. Our authors will share what inspires them to write, what inspires their characters to act, and anything and everything else related to the theme of discovering and cultivating inspiration.

The Avon Library’s Local Author Festival is held each summer from June-August. Writers from New England and the tri-state area visit to share their work, inspiration, and ideas with our audience. The festival will celebrate its fifth year in 2018!

To date, the Local Author Festival has featured the talents of Ann Leary, Matthew Dicks, James Fry, Adriana Trigiani, and Andrew Gross, Archer Mayor, and over 125 others.
