You’ll find a wide range of books from local and visiting writers, including award-winning fiction, nonfiction, poetry, illustrated books for children and books for young adults. Prices start at $5.00.

We’re thrilled to once again feature the delightful, award-winning Myrtle the Purple Turtle Books. Since our last Festival, Cynthia Reyes and her co-author Lauren Reyes-Grange have published two new titles, Myrtle’s Game and Myrtle Makes a New Friend. Any young child and many adults will enjoy Myrtle’s adventures and find her to be good company.
