If you are a fan of the supernatural, alternative history, Sherlock and Doctor Who then we have a program practically tailor-made for you!  Come along to Springfield Celebrates Authors: Will Ritter on Saturday, March 2 at 2 p.m. to hear from the locally-based author of the New York Times bestselling series ‘Jackaby’.  Described by Kirkus Reviews as “a magical mystery tour de force”, the Jackaby series takes place in an alternate-history New England town where the pragmatic Abigail Rook takes a job as assistant to an investigator who is not only a brilliant detective but is able to observe the supernatural!  Ritter’s new series “The Oddmire” which is described as “an action-packed fantasy adventure series featuring witches, shape-shifters, and other creatures of fairytale and folklore, including two brothers—one human and one a goblin changeling—on a life-changing quest into the Oddmire” will be released by Workman books in July.


Springfield Celebrates Authors is an annual series presented by the Springfield Public Library highlighting local, national and international authors.  Over the course of five months patrons can hear from published trail guides, essayists, poets, Young Adult Authors and Sports Journalists.  The next Springfield Celebrates Authors event will feature award winning poet Erica Goss presenting a workshop followed by an Open Mic on Saturday, April 13 at 2 p.m.

All events are free and open to the public.
