A space may be shared by more than one author but each selling author is expected to pay the full entry fee of $25.
We ask the authors to furnish their own tables/chairs. There will be a bake sale table, Cafe Serenity will have a coffee tent, there will be Portie-Potties in the Park and we will have music, “Sax-On-the-Beach” for three hours. Leashed pets are welcome as long as they are picked up after.
Pioneer Park is located in the 300 block of W. Dearborn Street in Englewood between the Mango Bistro and the Amherst Depot Train Shop. You will see a sign saying Book Festival in front of the Park but please circle the block and enter the Park from the rear on GREEN STREET where you will find ample parking.
There will be volunteers to direct you. You will look for a sign-in table to get your assigned space. Authors may register beginning at 9 A.M.
We will have a large sign across State Road #776 advertising the festival several day in advance. We will be passing out flyers around town. We have already gotten some good PR and will be getting more. You can help us by talking up the festival to all our friends and groups or clubs you might belong to.
Because of insurance requirements cars must be parked in the designated parking area only, not in the park itself, and no liquor or wine is allowed to be consumed in the Park.
Our sponsors this year are Englewood’s two libraries, Elsie Quirk and Englewood Charlotte and our Book Festival committee members are: Lynda Citro, Catherine Davis, Diana Harris, Midge Orren, Dawn Penwell, Jennifer Perry and Phyllis Reading. We are all looking forward to seeing you and with your help having another successful book fest.
Lets hope for good weather since there is no rain date.
Don’t hesitate to e-mail Diana Harris at
or call (941) 786-8204 if you have any questions.
PLEASE SIGN THE FORMS BELOW AND RETURN WITH YOUR CHECK.
