For 26 years in mid-September, the Eden Mills Writers’ Festival engages writers with their readers, the industry and emerging talent. In addition to readings, the Festival also features Publishers’ Way, where publishers, booksellers, magazine producers, and non-profit groups showcase their wares, and authors sign their books. Live music entertains between reading sets, and delicious refreshments can be enjoyed in the tented food court.
