Words in Bloom in Beautiful Downtown Canandaigua, NY

June 1 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Imagine an outdoor book store… That’s exactly what you’ll have if you join F.L.A.R.E. for Words In Bloom in The Commons at the corner of Rte. 332 and Coach Street!

As part of the annual Canandaigua in Bloom event, Finger Lakes authors will  present Words in Bloom – a showcase of books set in the Finger Lakes or written by authors from the Finger Lakes. You can leisurely stroll around The Commons to meet local authors, enjoy brief readings from their books, and browse a selection available to purchase from multiple genres. We’ll even have chairs set up so you can sit, relax, and read a little from the books available to purchase, just like sitting in your favorite bookstore!

Bring the kids and grandkids for children’s activities, too. They can have fun while you’re perusing the book selections. It’s never too early to find a special gift for a special occasion or for the holidays. An autographed copy of a book makes a unique gift.

Participating authors coming soon:
