A Day to Remember: Writers Respond to Readers 2017
What do you get when you combine four bestselling, unique authors and a room full of avid readers? An amazing day of literary conversation.

From Brunonia Barry's slides showing us old vs. new Salem, MA, and introducing us to real and fictional witches; to Kevin Wilson's quiet, yet hilarious talk about getting to know his characters, then writing stories for them that will make them like him; to Eleanor Brown's amazing collection of letters from her Grandmother's adventure in 1920s France, and the novel that she was able to write based on them; and to Amor Towles, a true gentleman, allowing us to explore the grand Metropol Hotel in Moscow -- it was truly a day to remember!

We are so thankful to our guest authors, and all of our wonderful attendees for making Writers Respond to Readers a very special event.
Stay Tuned!

The 20th Anniversary of Writers Respond to Readers will be celebrated with a very special event in January 2018. We hope to announce our guest authors, a new venue, and much more, in the early fall.

The Tattered Cover V.I.B. Picks
Every now and then we encounter a new book that we’re so excited about we want to shout it from the rooftops, so we've created a special tag to distinguish it from the rest:  Tattered Cover V.I.B.  (very impressive book)! That means it’s a true stand-out in a season of many excellent and compelling new books.
