[MESA, AZ]- The Mesa Book Festival launched their website with the first details of their upcoming December event. Partnering with the Downtown Mesa Festival of the Arts, event organizer Anthology, Inc. plans to bring 85+ literary themed authors, publishers, small presses and others to Downtown Mesa to celebrate books and reading.
Registration for vending spaces will open August 1st, and Anthology has approached two outstanding local book sellers, Bonny Books and Duncan's Books and More to provide sales services for authors who prefer not handle those tasks on their own.
The outdoor event seeks to give the local writers the opportunity to interact directly with patrons during the busy holiday selling season when people are looking for unique gifts for friends and family members.
The event will also feature a presentation space for Authors to share the stories of their books with attendees, and a poetry open microphone area for the valley poets to share their works.
