RiverRun is only an hour north of Boston, which means that we've become a literary hotspot for author tours. We host over 100 events a year, and feature authors at our store and in bigger off-site venues around town. We're proud to partner with The Music Hall, South Church, the Portsmouth Public Library, and other community leaders to bring interesting and important authors to seacoast New Hampshire.
If you can't make it to one of our many readings, order a signed copy! We can even get it personalized for you if you want. And check out our Gallery page for photos from past events.
