Merrimack Valley Halloween

book festival

The 5th annual
Merrimack Valley Halloween Book Festival!

Every year, authors and publishers debut some of their most hotly anticipated new releases at our event. This year, come and meet more than FIFTY authors and artists as they sell and sign their work and conduct free panel discussions on various book, publishing, and spooky Halloween topics. We'll have Halloween candy, and costumes are encouraged! The event is free, and the authors donate a portion of their book sale proceeds to the library, so you can have fun, get a bit spooked, and support your local library, too!
