This special annual event will feature 8 different authors presenting their new books in several different sessions and venues over the course of 2 days.

On Friday night enjoy a lively evening with authors and attendees at The Celebration Barn at The Inn at Manchester. The event includes dinner catered by The Perfect Wife Restaurant and Tavern , a spirited game of book trivia, fun prizes, the ever popular Yankee Book Swap, and a cash bar. 

Saturday will again be full of interesting author sessions and plenty of Q&A. The day will end with the main event which includes all of our authors in one room for their final presentation, topping it all off with a group book signing.

(Some authors and attendees have even been known to hit the local taverns after the event concludes. We won't tell if you won't!)

Awaken on Sunday and spend some leisurely time exploring our Thomas Jefferson Readers Park and outdoor gardens, and our 10,000 square foot multi-level bookstore filled to capacity with books, games, toys, clothing, jewelry and more! Take a stroll down Manchester's Main Street and discover the amazing independently owned shops, restaurants, and clothing outlets.
