The Bucks County Book Festival invites local, independent, or self-published authors to participate in the first Writers' Market.


This is a juried event where a select number of authors will be chosen by a panel of judges to meet readers and sell their books. This event is designed to feature local, self or independently published authors.  


This event will take place on Saturday, September 30th, 2023, from 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM at The James Lorah Memorial Home in Doylestown, PA. Authors must be available on the day of the event and agree to stay for the duration of the event. There is no cost for authors to participate in this event. 

We are proud to have The Friends of the Doylestown Library as a partner for this event.
