Third Annual Sarasota Book Fair Returns Next Month


SARASOTA — The 3rd Annual Sarasota Book Fair returns to Art Center Sarasota, October 25. This literary festival showcases regionally based, self-published authors and illustrators of adults’ and children's books.
The fair is being run in collaboration with ABCBooks4Children&Adults, Inc., a not-for-profit organization with members from Tampa to Ft Myers. Readers of all ages are invited to meet the talents behind the books and watch illustrators at work. Admission is free.
According to event coordinator Brenda Spalding, the upcoming book fair will showcase 35 authors and illustrators, some of whom are members of Peace River Writers, Authors Connection, Gulf Coast Writers, Florida Writers Association and ABCBooks4Children&Adults, Inc. In addition, book illustrators, including Jacqueline Paske Gill, and Lucy Tobias, will demonstrate their talents throughout the day.
“We’ll have something for almost every taste,” says Spalding. “The festival will showcase history, mystery, thriller, romance, and travel books. We’ll also have children's picture books and books for young adults—so bring the whole family! The authors will be pleased to sign a copy of their book for you, making it even more of a special experience.”
The event is scheduled for 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Art Center Sarasota is located at 707 N. Tamiami Trail, in Sarasota. For more information about this event, call 941-365-2032 or visit www.artsarasota.org.
