Nine New Jersey authors will discuss their experiences and views on writing in four panel discussions at the New Providence Book Festival on Saturday, September 16, 2017 on the grounds of the Salt Box Museum.
The panel schedule is as follows:
- 10:30 AM: Kerry Gans will read from her children’s book, The Witch of Zal and answer questions on writing for children
- 11:00 AM: Bob Mayers, Joe Medler, Linda Raedisch will discuss The Challenges of Writing Non-Fiction
- 12:00 Noon: JR. Bale, Mary Carlomagno and Michael Stephen Daigle will explore Building Three-Dimensional Characters
- 1:00 PM: Reyna Favis and Kristina Garlick will share their literary views on Science Fiction, Fantasy and the Supernatural
In addition, these and other New Jersey authors will sign books and talk to visitors at the festival from 9AM to 3PM.
“We wanted to create an event that connects authors with readers in a very personal way,” explained J.R. Bale, one of the organizers of the event and an author himself. “With over a dozen authors of various genres, it should be a stimulating event for even the most casual book lover.”
Anyone purchasing a book at the festival will also receive a free raffle ticket for a drawing for an overnight stay at the Murray Hill Hotel and Suites and a $50 gift certificate for Moe’s Bistro. Other vital festival sponsors include the Lantern Hill retirement community and Page Bound Success, an organization which supports the marketing efforts of local writers.
The festival will be held on the grounds of the Salt Box Museum at 1350 Springfield Avenue from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. The rain date is September 23, 2017.
The Salt Box Museum, the site of the festival, is celebrating its 50th anniversary. The museum, operated by the New Providence Historical Society, will be open to visitors, free of charge. Refreshments will be available on the grounds.
