Books ‘N Brew returns to Doylestown to cap off Bucks County Book Festival


The Bucks County Book Festival is hosting a free Books ‘N Brew event at three downtown Doylestown pubs from 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24.

It’s like listening to your favorite band, but this time the artists are published authors who will entertain you with the inside scoop about their books, life, and writing journey. Meet 12 diverse authors covering genres from psychological thriller, to sports, cocktails, genealogy, history, music, mystery, biography, women’s literature, and a hot self-help book.

Grab a seat at 3:30 p.m. to be ready for the first set and stay put as all 12 authors come to you in rotating sets with breaks in between for beverage refreshers and book purchases.

The three participating pubs are The Hattery at 18 W. State St., Hops/Scotch Cocktail Bar at 22 S. Main St., and The Garden Bar at Puck at 1 Printers Ally (rain location at The Doylestown Bookshop at 16 S. Main St.). Pick one location and settle in the authors and the pop-up bookshop come to each venue. Featured books from all 12 authors will be available for purchase, and bookseller partner The Doylestown and Lahaska Bookshop will donate a portion of every book purchase to the Bucks County Book Festival.

“What goes better with delicious appetizers and a few drinks than great literature?” asked founder Ellen R. Green. The 5th annual BucksBookFest features both locally and nationally known authors and best sellers. Sneak-peak author interviews are shared on the Bookfest’s Facebook page and author bios and book blurbs can be found at
