2021 Millbrook Literary Festival

Community Read Program

September 18th
4 sessions throughout the day
discussions led by community facilitators

The Millbrook Literary Festival, the Millbrook Library, and the Merritt Bookstore present our community read and discussion!

We have chosen four short books from Thich Nhat Hahn’s “How To” Collection: How to Eat, How to See, How to Fight, and How to Walk.

Everyone can choose one (or more!) books to read. They will be sold at a discounted price at the bookstore and the library. On September 18th, Millbrook Community Day, discussions around each book will be held throughout the village, moderated by community members. 

You can read more about each book here.

The books will cost $2 each, subsidized by the Literary Festival and the bookstore to make sure they are available to everyone. 


Children’s Program

On the same day, September 18th, there will be a children’s program at the library from 10 am – 2 pm with special reading by children’s author Lesa Cline-Ransome, a pinwheel craft, and community readers. Stay tuned for more details!
