Harrisburg Book Festival

Many of us were disappointed when snow forced the cancellation of our authors day at the Midtown Scholar this past December. Catherine didn't want to cancel it and said she planned to postpone the event until spring.

Since Spring schedules fill quickly, I emailed her today to see if she had come up with a date.
Catherine is working with other merchants on planning what she calls the First Annual Harrisburg Book Festival for late Spring (May/June). She envisions it will be an outdoor city street festival.

It sounds like a lot of fun. Lets all encourage her.

Stay tuned.

I really hope this gets put back together. I was ready to drive in that storm back in December but better weather will be better for all of us.

An outdoor festival would be wonderful! Thanks for the heads up Don.

What a great idea! And I did drive up in that storm & ended up spending 2 nights in a hotel after I got stuck on the road. So spring sounds like a wonderful alternative.

Hey, if you get a Harrisburg Book Festival going, please let us know at the MidAtlantic Book Publishers Assn. - we'd love to get a booth as an exhibitor to provide exposure for our members' books! http://www.midatlanticbookpublishers.com. Thanks!
