Approximately 20 authors are expected on Sept. 17, including New York Times best-selling author Kristan Higgins, WTNH Meteorologist Ashley Baylor, longtime Connecticut broadcaster Larry Rifkin, and Cheshire’s own Loan Le.
All those who attend the three days are asked to donate $10.
To top it all off, there will be a fill-a-bag book sale on Sunday, Sept. 18.
The mission of ReRead Books is to provide job training and skill development for young adults with special needs and to provide the Cheshire community and beyond with a used bookstore that serves as an outlet for the community.
