It’s a multi-venue book fest that spans both villages from the Tarrytown Music Hall to the Philipse Manor station of Sleepy Hollow. Many activities will be along a walk-able, family-friendly route running along Broadway, basically the path Ichabod Crane would have taken when he’s fleeing the Headless Horseman, of course. For further venues, there will be a shuttle.
