5th Annual Florence Festival of BooksSaturday, September 26, 2015
Florence Events Center
10 am until 4 pm
This annual event gives the public a chance to meet local authors and purchased signed copies of their books. The number of participants increases every year. If I remember right, there were around 60 authors in attendance last year. There are also usually a few publishers. So, if you're interested in becoming a published author, feel free to visit those booths to learn more.
There are usually events spaced out throughout the day including book and poetry reading, live music (usually a piano player), and the kitchen sells a variety of lunch options.
I'll have all four of my published books available in my booth. Please, stop by and say "hi."
