Northshire Books brings back Booktopia, their annual two-day literary festival where authors and readers meet to celebrate in Manchester, Vt.

The festival began as an event in collaboration with Books on the Nightstand, a podcast hosted by Ann Kingman and Michael Kindness, both sales representatives for Random House publishers. Now it continues on the first weekend of May with exclusive author events, presentations, book signings, meet and greets and a celebratory dinner.

‘This gathering of authors, book sharing with old friends and new, laughter and reflection … was phenomenal. Paraphrasing Karen King Seaman, ‘We are living in Booktopia Afterglow. If only this could be bottled.” — Carol Kubala

This year’s writers and speakers include …

Craig Popelars, publisher of Tin House Books.

Brendan Slocumb, author of The Violin Conspiracy

Jane Pek, author of The Verifiers

Ben Shattuck, author of Six Walks: In the Footsteps of Henry David Thoreau

Hernan Diaz, author of Trust

Courtney Maum, author of The Year of the Horses: A Memoir

Dalia Azim, author of Country of Origin

Bill Roorbach, author of Lucky Turtle

David Wright Faladé, author of Black Cloud Rising

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
