Sleepy Hollow Lit Fest (SHLF, pronounced “Shelf”) is a celebration of the art of writing and will showcase multiple areas of interest that connect deeply with this historic region – specifically mystery, horror, children’s/YA lit, nonfiction/historical, and literature/poetry. 2019-2020 marks the 200th Anniversary of the writing of Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, a seminal work which touches on all five of our areas of interest. In addition, the festival strives to showcase the diversity of our community by featuring a wide array of voices and writers.
SHLF is no ordinary festival, but rather is a total celebration of the villages of Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow, with events, readings, and panels along the route of Ichabod Crane’s literary journey down Broadway to the Old Dutch Church and beyond. This ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ style of festival will allow visitors to personalize their experience, attracting a broader range of visitors to the day’s events, and supporting our local businesses.
