The inaugural Nutmeg Book Festival enjoyed a successful debut Saturday, Nov. 23, in New Milford.

The event, featuring 18 local book authors, took place at the railroad station on Railroad Street.

Patrons had the chance to meet the writers, and copies of books were available to purchase and be signed.

A variety of genres for all age ranges was present, including storytelling for children and a Mark Twain trivia quiz.
