Wellsboro's BookFest!

This is our 11th Annual BookFest! We're excited to once again have this opportunity to promote local & regional authors, and encourage community literacy. BookFest allows the public to interact with published authors, to ask questions about the writing and publishing process in today's changing industry, and to buy unique, personalized gifts. 

Held at the Deane Center for the Performing Arts, in the front foyer/lobby section, on Saturday, October 19th, from 9am to 3pm.
