Join us for the second annual event! Meet 99+ notable local Maine authors, get your books signed, and support the local literary arts with your purchase of signed or personalized books! Enjoy readings, talks, and panels throughout the day as we “take over” the beautiful Bangor Public Library to celebrate the Literary Arts this winter holiday season.

Authors from all genres will be represented: adult and YA fiction, non-fiction, romance, adventure, folklore, outdoors, self help, science fiction, fantasy, cryptozoology, children's books, cookbooks, mystery, paranormal, history, and many more. With dozens and dozens of titles by Maine authors to discover, there’s something for everyone. There will also be raffle tickets, sponsors’ vendor tables, and special surprises and events at the day of the show.

The Fair will also feature the special launch of Rivers of Ink: Literary Reflections on the Penobscot, a charity anthology to support the the Katahdin Woods & Water National Monument Wabanaki Contact Center, Tekαkαpimək. Find out more here:

Free admission and programming but if you plan to buy books bring cash, Venmo, or PayPal as many authors cannot accept credit cards. Shopping local and supporting the arts locally is Paul Bunyan approved!

This event is organized and hosted by Christopher Packard, Author of Mythical Creatures of Maine, in cooperation with the Bangor Public Library.
