Local Author Festival

The Avon Library’s Local Author Festival will be held from May-August this year. 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, Kristan Higgins, James Fry, Adriana Trigiani, and Andrew Gross, Archer Mayor, and many more.

Our survey for this summer’s events has closed. We will update this page once authors are selected.
