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 table, a coffee tent, there will be Portie Potties in the Park and we will have live 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 next to the Mango Bistro. 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 in a new large parking area which is surrounded by a white slat fence.

There will be volunteers to direct  you. Please 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 days in advance. We will be passing out flyers and posters 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 your friends, or groups and 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, once again, 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 Goldy Schumacher. We are 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.
