Trish Wordan of Groom 'N Dors in Mercer has agreed to attend the 2018 festival, so little ones can come read books to an appreciative dog.

January 2018: The 4th Annual West PA Book Festival will be held on July 21st from 10 am to 4 pm at Brandy Springs Park, Mercer. 

March 2017: The 3rd Annual West PA Book Festival will be held on July 22nd from 10 am to 4 pm. We have a change of venue this year and will be at Brandy Springs Park in Mercer rather than at the Courthouse.

May 2016: Mercer Mainstreet
will be hosting a craft/vendor show along with the farmers market during the festival. Included will be book-related crafts.

April 2016:
We have an official photographer! Denise McCoy of Mercer will be documenting the festival for our website.

January 2016: This year's Book Festival is set for July 23, 2016! Mark your calendars! (We are looking for sponsors. Find info on the sponsor page.)

July 28: We now have a Facebook page for continuing coverage of our local author events plus literacy information and reading links.

July 27: The Record Argus did a feature story, with photos, on the Festival. Thank you to the area newspapers for being so supportive of the event!

July 26: Our first Book Festival was quite a success thanks to our authors, sponsors, supporters, volunteers, and everyone who came out to meet us! Thank you all! Plans will be in the works for next year's West PA Book Festival. News will be posted here. Be sure to check our FB event page for photos:

July 22: We are on the front page of the Sharon Herald! Read it HERE if you missed grabbing a print copy.

July 15: We are on the front page of Greenville's Record Argus today! Be sure to pick up your copy.

June 25, 2015: We have an Event Page on Facebook! Check us out for literacy articles and event information.

The 1st Annual West PA Book Festival will be held on the Courthouse Lawn in beautiful Mercer, Pennsylvania on July 25th, 2015 from 10 am - 4 pm (some of our authors may be set up by 9 am).

We plan for this to be a growing yearly summer community event to support/encourage literacy and reading and to provide book lovers with new reading choices. Come meet our authors, all local to the west central PA region, and get a book (or 2 or 3 or 4...) signed personally to you!

Our rain date is the following Saturday, August 1st, but we will not change it for a normal amount of PA drizzle. If there's a date change, we'll post it here the day before the event.

Make plans to stop by and bring your friends, book lovers or not. Converts always very welcome.
