Millbrook Literary Festival

3 Friendly Lane
Millbrook, NY 12545

The Millbrook Literary Festival began in 2008, inspired by Merritt Bookstore founder Scott Meyer, who sought to engage the local community, share his love of books and encourage writers.

Every year, the Festival features nationally recognized authors and promotes our talented local and regional writers, with panels that are accessible and interesting to all ages. This year’s festival will present many timely, thought-provoking, and thoroughly entertaining authors and illustrators participating in panel discussions, readings, and signings throughout the day at the Millbrook Library on Franklin Avenue. Whether we prefer printed books, ebooks, or audiobooks, reading is not something we do strictly in isolation. The Millbrook Literary Festival brings together a vibrant community of readers and writers to discuss how what we read — in history, culture, science, politics, and etc — relates to our everyday lives.

Hundreds of people attend the Festival every year, filling the restaurants and local businesses with visitors from neighboring towns, New York City and from all over New England and upstate New York.  Together we celebrate the joy of reading and attract new people to the wonderful world of the written word.
