The 3rd Annual Florence Festival of Books is a book fair for both authors and publishers. It opens Saturday, September 28, at 10 a.m. and continues until 4 p.m. Admission is free.
At a book fair individual authors offer their books for sale. And since the Florence event also has publishers, each publisher will show the books they have published and try to sign up new authors.
The biggest winners are the people who attend—anyone who loves books and reading. Upon entering, all attendees will receive a tote bag to carry their book purchases. Browse among 50-plus authors as well as several publishers. What a treat to look at book after book of all different genres, actually meet the person who wrote each book, talk to them, buy a book, and have the author sign it on the spot. Some of these authors will be first timers and others will have numerous books for sale.
Anyone who has a book to publish, this is your big chance! It’s a great opportunity to check out more than one publisher.
