On March 2nd we (Loyd Auerbach and Richard L. Wren) will be hosting the "FIRST ANNUAL EAST BAY AREA LOCAL AUTHORS BOOK FAIRE" at The Oak Room of Grace Presbyterian Church, 2100 Tice Valley Boulevard, Walnut Creek, California. It will be BY LOCAL AUTHORS FOR LOCAL AUTHORS” and will be free to the (book-buying) public. Cost per author will be a share of hall rental (approx. $25-$35 per author, on the lower side as we get more people signed up), plus we're asking an additional $10.00 above that for publicity and snacks. Each author will have a large table space to display and sell their books, and will also have time on the room's platform stage for a brief reading, remarks, and/or Q & A session. We expect a maximum of 15 authors and already have about 7 signed up. We expect the event will last from late morning to late afternoon. Exact timing TBD.
We have someone who will publicize the event and expect newspaper, radio and TV coverage along with promotion in Rossmoor. We are also seeking promotion by independent book stores, and already have promotional support by book stores such as A GREAT GOOD PLACE FOR BOOKS in Montclair. The venue itself ( a separate hall at Grace Presbyterian Church complex) will promote to their large community, as will HCH Institute in Lafayette, where Loyd teaches.
