61st Annual Mark Twain Library Book Fair
February 9, 2022 @ 9:00 am - May 9, 2022 @ 4:00 pm
Over 65,000 books for sale organized in 75 categories! Free admission (except first hour on Friday) over Labor Day Weekend @ the Redding Community Center. Huge selection of vintage science fiction, music CDs, cookbooks, classic children’s books, Civil War books and more! The Mark Twain Library Book Fair is the oldest – and one of the largest – in New England. The library was founded by Samuel Clemens – Mark Twain, himself – in 1908. Twain moved to Redding in 1907 and had more books than would fit in his new home. He donated thousands of his own titles to help get the library started; today, over a century later, the Book Fair raises the funds to keep his library thriving.
