Special Events

For personalized gifts unique to Brattleboro, come to Write Action’s Holiday Mini Book Fair at the Atrium in the Brooks House, 132 Main St., Brattleboro, on Dec. 9 from noon to 3 p.mAt this special book fair, authors will be available to discuss and sign their books.

In addition to individual books by local authors, a special Brattleboro history book featuring chapters contributed by 33 local writers, will be for sale at the Write Action table. “Print Town: Brattleboro’s Legacy of Words,” produced by The Brattleboro Words Project, is in its third printing and received the Hathaway Award from the Vermont Historical Society. From Vermont Historical Society’s press release for the award: “‘Print Town’ is a 247-page collection of stories covering almost 300 years of local history. Many of the narratives will ring familiar with local history buffs, but the publication is peppered with lesser-known tales that contribute to the breadth and diversity of the finished product.”

Additionally, there will be a collection of new books gifted to the nonprofit organization from local authors, available at a huge discount.

There will be T-shirts for sale from The University of Brattleboro featuring Cynthia Parker-Houghton’s quirky and wonderful designs, as well as T-shirts from Write Action with the beloved writing cow mascot.

The Mini Holiday Book Fair is organized by Write Action, a nonprofit devoted to “encouraging, nurturing, and promoting the literary arts in Brattleboro and the surrounding towns” and is sponsored in part by the Brattleboro Literary Festival and Time to Write.

All are invited to come in from the cold and enjoy free coffee and pastries. For additional information, contact info@writeaction.org.
