BEST OF BOOKS
The Best of Books
“is declaring Saturday 14th December 2013 Antiguan Author’s Day. We are inviting all of the writers who contributed to “So The Nailhead Bend, So the Story End” and other Antiguan Authors to be at the Best of Books between the hours of 1:30 & 4:00 PM to meet your fans. Spend a quiet moment with a reader who has questions to ask you about the characters of your book. Read your favorite section of your own book and identify sections of books by other local authors that you found particularly …interesting. It’s an afternoon to autograph books, interact with your readers and simply enjoy the book environment. Authors Please RSVP and let us know if you will support this activity.” N.B. This is an event note posted to the Best of Books event page. It’s addressed to the authors…but of course for that interaction to take place that mean readers you’ve got to be there too.
