Holiday Book Bazaar, Tree Lighting, York First Friday

The Lit and Art Reading Series and The Smyser-Bair House / Historic York Inn invites you to join us for the York Holiday Book Bazaar in association with City of York’s First Friday and the lighting of the city’s holiday tree. 

The Holiday Book Bazaar takes place at 30 South Beaver Street from 6 to 9 p.m.

Live music will be performed by Limestone Connection and Red Sammy.

Interspersed with the music will be readings by regional authors, artwork by regional artists, and the opportunity to talk with the authors, musicians, and artists and have them sign their books, CDs and artwork for you.

Free refreshments, snacks, cocktails, wine, and beer will be available, including a beer tasting will offered by Brewery Products.

Complete tours of the 1830s mansion, The Smyser-Bair House / Historic York Inn, will be offered every hour on the hour. Step back in time for a tour through history, with hand-carved, gilded Pier mirrors, stained glass, etched glass, hand plasterwork, woodwork, and chandeliers that rival those found in museums. Anchored in the historic district since the 1830s, and belonging to the Smyser-Bair family until 1979 (when it was left to the York Historical Trust before becoming a private inn) this home is a rich part of York's history, recently featured in front page news and on national television for its historic charm. (And it could be yours.)

Regional musicians, artists, and authors featured include:
Limestone Connection, Red Sammy, Shirley Brewer, Kathy Cottle, John Decker, Holly Morse-Ellington, Tom Glenn, Eric D. Goodman, Nataliya Goodman, Nitin Jagdish, Manzar Rassouli, Jason Tinney, and Adam Trice.

Whether you want to enjoy the beer tasting, live music, regional authors autographing books, spiced cider, autumn snacks, a tour of the Smyser-Bair House, browse the book table, or a little bit of everything, join us from 6 to 9 p.m. at 30 South Beaver Street, York, PA 17401 on York First Friday December 2!
