About Us

Fright Reads Book Festival was founded in 2021 as a self-proclaimed Halloween pre-game. It is designed to be a one-stop shop for spooky book needs and quality horror decor and artwork. 

Author Harry Carpenter founded Fright Reads intending to put like-minded individuals into one room. Designing the event to cater to small, independent authors and businesses, he's strived to maintain that, as observed from the first annual event! As seen in the previous events, everything from candle makers to jewelers were featured to give everyone a chance to be showcased and succeed. 

Since its inception, Fright Reads has grown exponentially, featuring celebrities, and musicians, becoming more of an "Arts Horror Festival" than a book festival. Writing, authors, and books will still be at the heart of the event, with the intention to keep a 60/40 split of authors vs everything else! Don't miss out on this event!
