Flagler County Public Library is making plans for its second annual Book Fest on April 6 and is calling on authors, as well as book illustrators, and publishers to be part of the event.
“I find out every day about the phenomenal talent that is here in our local and neighboring communities and there is a great opportunity to showcase the work of these individuals, and to offer presentations and workshops to residents and visitors,” said Chief of Special Projects and Library Director Holly Albanese. “The turnout was tremendous last year, and I am looking forward to this year’s event.”
The Flagler County Book Fest will feature presentations, workshops, panel discussions, author signings, book sales, and a variety of activities for both children and adults. This will be a free event and open to the community from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the first Saturday in April – April 6.
Participants will be asked to contribute to a workshop, class, or panel discussion. Those interested in showcasing their books can request an application at the Research Desk, or via email at [email protected]. The deadline for applications is March 30.
“We are encouraging local authors, illustrators, and publishers to join us for this event,” Albanese said. “The more participation we have, the more fun and successful every Flagler County Book Fest will be, now and in the future.”
