The 2017 Northwoods Book Festival is underway! Eight author events are scheduled in six northwoods communities this summer, including an appearance by BJ Hollars, author of Flock Together: a love affair with extinct birds, here at the Mercer Library on August 8.

All programs are free and open to the public. Events will be held at each participating library, and patrons are encouraged to attend events at all of our participating locations. The 2017 Northwoods Book Festival series is also sponsored by a grant from the St. Matthias Thrift Shop in Minocqua, Wisconsin.
