In addition to all of the great vendors, we are also showcasing a number of great events to be happening during the Festival- all free to attend.
For 2017, Our Event Lineup includes:
READINGS AT THE TREE- Courtesy of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, there will be a lineup of award winning children's book authors reading their books at Mesa's Christmas Tree. That's a 40 foot Christmas tree across the street from the Festival.
GENRE FAN DISCUSSION GROUPS- Inside the OneohOne Gallery, located adjacent to the Vendor area, the festival will be hosting a series of panels based on book genre's. Each Panel will feature 3 authors in that Genre and you'll be able to talk about your favorite books, and learn about perhaps your next favorite book.
THE OPEN MIC- Located at Volstead Public House, the open mic will be 10 minute readings of book passages, poetry and more. Stop in to Volstead any time during the Festival to heard something new.
