Eat Local Read Local

My special thanks to Erin Fishman of the Cascades Library, part of the Loudon County Public Library, for inviting me to the 3rd Annual Eat Local Read Local event. It promises to be a family fun day (books, food trucks, musicians, face painting, balloon art, etc.) of discovery celebrating the joy of reading, and showcasing local authors.

 

From the Loudon County Public Library:

 

Hello,

It’s that time of year again!  You are invited to participate in our Third Annual Eat Local Read Local event at Cascades Library in Loudoun County on Saturday, September 29thfrom 10:00am-1:00pm.  We invite writers of fiction and nonfiction for adults, teens, and children to participate, and authors are invited to sell their works as part of the event.  This is a free event for both authors and the public, and every year we strive to make it bigger and better than the year before!

Eat Local Read Local provides a wonderful opportunity to showcase the many talented authors, illustrators, artisan food producers, farms, and restaurants in our region.  We will have vendors, food trucks, and musicians, all set up outside in our parking lot under tents. The Library willprovide one table per author, free of cost.
