One Book One Valley will be at the White Mountains Pride festival at the North Conway Community Center on June 29 from 10 am to 4 pm. Come stop at our table, where you will find friendly librarians, Free Mom Hugs, fun giveaways, books, library cards, info about library resources.

We’ll also have save-the-date info about this fall’s One Book One Valley program, when our book will be Becoming Nicole: The Transformation of an American Family by Amy Ellis Nutt.

If you’re at the festival, stop and say “hi!” And we’ll give you a hug, and maybe a book.
