The free festival features 33 prominent authors participating in eleven genre panel presentations on Saturday and 7 panels on Sunday. The hours are 10:00 to 5:00 on Saturday and 1:00 to 5:00 on Sunday.
Each hour will have a 40-minute panel, with 3 authors, who have 10 minutes each to discuss their books, their writing, and their experience as an author. This will be followed by 20 minutes of casual informal interaction between authors and guests.
The Festival will be in the first-floor meeting room. Seating for approximately 60 guests will be in front of the speaker’s stand and panelist table. There will be 7 panels on Saturday and 4 on Sunday. The panels include 4 fiction, 3 nonfiction, 2 poetry, 1 children’s book, and 1 anthology.
The Festival will be in the first-floor meeting room. Tables with book displays will be around the perimeter of the room, with two or three authors per table. In the 20-minute casual period, you can mingle with several renowned authors plus some of your neighbors who have written and published a book.
