Upcoming Events

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.

For the Birds

The music and poetry are as much a celebration of what birds evokes in us, as it is a celebration of their beauty and song. This concert takes place at South Church in Portsmouth on Saturday evening, October 15, at 7:30pm, and all proceeds benefit the South Church capital campaign which is funding improvements to the historic property in downtown Portsmouth.
