27th Annual Family Trees

November 23, 2022 — January 02, 2023


Family Trees is one of the happiest and funnest events I know! Kids, holidays, and reading–what could be better? What an honor it is to be honorary chair of this wonderful event! I can’t wait to connect with all the families this year and hang out with the kids amid the beautiful, decorated trees–presided over by the surely-smiling spirits of Emerson and Thoreau.”

– Award-winning author and naturalist Sy Montgomery, Honorary Chair, Family Trees, 2022

27th Annual Family Trees: A Celebration of Children’s Literature begins on November 23, 2022 through January 2, 2023! Concord’s literary legacy is given a creative twist as 34 trees and wreaths of all shapes and sizes are decorated with charm and inspiration from acclaimed children’s books.

Award-winning author and naturalist, Sy Montgomery, serves as the Honorary Chair of the 27th Annual Family Trees: A Celebration of Children’s Literature.
