Local Author Festival

Thank you for making our summer 2018 festival a success! The theme was Inspiration. Our authors shared 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 celebrated its fifth year in 2018 and welcomed its 160th author!

We have featured the talents of Ann Leary, Matthew Dicks, James Fry, Adriana Trigiani, and Andrew Gross, Archer Mayor, and many more.
