Wisconsin Authors needed

Authors needed to attend Local Author Book Fair

Where: Germantown Library Meeting Room- Germantown, Wisconsin
When:   Saturday, November 21, 2015
                Open to public from 10am-2pm (Authors should arrive at 9am to set up.
Who:     Need both fiction and non-fiction writers. Would like a variety of genres 
                represented, including children’s books and poetry. (Sorry, no erotica per library

I hope to include a children’s “story hour,” as well as a young author table, where kids can write a story of their own (helped by “Books Bunny” the writing rabbit!) Kids can show their story to the authors for a “treat.” (This will get a parent to your table to see your work!)
Will work in time for author readings if there is enough author interest.
Coffee, hot cocoa, and cookies will be served

What you need to bring: Books to sell, bag of treats for kiddies, and your smile! We hope to bring in a good number of community readers and plan to do extensive local advertising of the event. The event’s proximity to the holidays should encourage holiday gift-buying and the children’s activities should get some moms (and deer hunter widows) in the door. Participation cost is only $15 to put toward the refreshment table, advertising flyer printing, and the cost of “Books Bunny,” who doesn’t work for free, unfortunately.

If interested, please email Mary Zinda at or call 282-224-4786
