The Hotchkiss Library of Sharon’s Summer Book Signing is the historic town library’s primary annual fundraiser. Proceeds further its mission of promoting literacy throughout the community. Thirty authors come together to sign their latest hardcover books for hundreds of ticketed book lovers from neighboring towns in Northwest Connecticut, the Hudson Valley, and the Berkshires. The festive evening, under tents on the library grounds adjacent to the beautiful Sharon Green, has become one of the area’s most anticipated summer events and is made possible by the hard work of a large crew of dedicated volunteers. The book signing kicks of a big weekend in Sharon, with the Sharon Green Arts and Crafts Show held on Saturday.
