After a long break from in-person author visits due to the pandemic, Wellesley Books has moved to a hybrid system of bringing writers and readers together. As over the past year, some appearances will be virtual. But several authors will this fall be appearing in the flesh, either at the Wellesley Square store or in partnership with Morse Institute Library, just down the street in Natick.
