45 different books by 47 NH authors here on Book Notes. As New Hampshire Writer's Week wraps up for 2014 the Center for the Book challenges you to read a book (or several) by a local author (or by several local authors). Let us know if you take up this challenge by leaving a comment on this post.
If you want to go a step further, encourage your book group to read a book by a local author and invite the author to come and talk to your group about their work. There is a list of authors volunteering to talk to book groups at the NH Writers' Project site.
This has been a great week of local author events and programs around the state and I hope it has encouraged you to try reading something new or to revisit an old favorite.
