Join ISHRA for a weekend of historic and current literature. Bring your favorite Isles of Shoals Book and relax with it in a porch rocker, or explore the Vaughn Library and the Star Island Bookstore and discover a new read. In cozy discussion groups we will share and discuss our favorite pieces of writing, and with a surprise local author we will lose ourselves in stories of the Shoals. Of course it isn’t all about books, during this slower paced conference we will gather at an ice cream social, with hot coffee on cool mornings on the hotel porch, we will take rowboat trips to Smuttynose Island, and have time to relax in the warm fall sunshine.
