Connecticut has a rich literary tradition with many well known authors having made their mark here, including Mark Twain and Harriet Beecher Stowe. While there is no official count, a rough estimate of published authors in Connecticut today puts the number around 200.
Celebrating this legacy and fulfilling its mission to promote authors and help them sell books, the Connecticut Authors and Publishers Association will host its first annual Connecticut Book Festival on Saturday, Oct. 1, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the West Hartford Conference Center. The free event has been in the planning for close to a year.
