Rutland Author Fair Coming Nov. 2

I don’t blog about every author event I do, but the Rutland Author Fair promises to be something special, so I wanted to share. Those of you in the Rutland, Mass., area, please take note. Better yet, tell your friends. And best of all, be sure to come!

The free Author Fair is Saturday, November 2 at Rutland Public Library, 280 Main Street in Rutland, from 10 AM to 1 PM. I’ll be showing my new novel Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, as well as my earlier works.

The energetic and lovely organizer (and author), Jean Grant, has put together a stellar program of meet-and-greet, pre-holiday shopping, and fun prizes and giveaways.

Some of the books on display and for sale at the Rutland Author Fair

Here’s a preview of what you’ll find at the event, which for some inexplicable reason, I decided to tell in rhyme. But don’t worry, the poetry available at the Author Fair will be much better! 🙂

The Authors

Some 20 local authors will be at the fair, 

to meet and greet fans, and sell their wares.  

There’ll be books of all kinds, for young and for old,

Some fiction, some non-fiction, and poetry so bold.

The Shopping

Halloween is over, Thanksgiving draws near. 

Buy books for your friends for that holiday cheer. 

A tie is impersonal, a toothbrush is boring

But a book is a gift that’s ripe for exploring.

The Giveaways

We’ll have three raffle baskets stuffed to the brim

With goodies and treats for her and for him.

So do something different, leave that yard work behind

Come meet local authors, and nourish your mind.
