Literary North champions the literary arts in Vermont and New Hampshire. Rebecca and Shari, two bookish friends, started Literary North in June 2016 as a carefully selected, online calendar of literary events happening in our rectangle of Northern New England.

Since then, we’ve expanded our original mission by partnering with the local literary community to promote literary-related events, and by hosting our own events, including the Mud Season Salon, Poetry & Pie, the Lady Sings the Blues Book Group, and the Slow Club Book Club. Our list of ideas keeps growing and we have several new events in the works for the coming year.

Welcome to Literary North. We’d love to hear what books you’re currently loving!

Stay in touch!
