The new Waverly Book Festival is taking place across the entire Waverly neighborhood from Friday, April 28th to Sunday April 30th, 2023.

Events will take place at Red Emma's and other area bookstores, as well as at Peabody Heights Brewery. On Sunday, 4/30, we're taking over the farmer's market lot on 32nd St. between Greenmount and Barclay for an outdoor book market with food, drinks, and a festival stage.
