Last Saturday I participated in a book fair at the GT Library. What a wonderful experience! I’d never done one before so didn’t know what to expect.
The book fair was in aid of LIFE (Literacy is for everyone) along with bringing attention to the old GT library and the library’s plans for the future. I was blown away by the number of books that people donated and how many people showed up to show their support to the community library and LIFE.
I sold three of my books (all proceeds went to LIFE). Thank you Shirley, Juliet, and Roy. I chatted with people I’d known for years and some I’d never officially met. More people signed up for my writing group, CayWriters and even my newsletter (YAY!) I even had a wonderful conversation about historical fiction and heard the story of a bra discovered in Medieval Times. How many people can say that? 🙂
I also made great connections with people from the local libraries, some of whom want to add my book to their library (WIPEE!) and was asked to do a reading by LIFE. The best part of the entire book fair was the overwhelming support for local authors and future ideas to connect them with the community.
It was a great day that left me filled with excitement, hope, and the endless possibilities for local authors in Cayman. Here are photos from the event.
