As this is our first year organizing BookFest mayhem, we're intentionally planning a smallish event. We simply don't know who of our Michigan Authors will be interested in participating or how many readers will attend... so we're ramping our BookFest gently; starting out small, and we'll gain momentum as the years go on. If there is enough interest from both authors and readers, we may hold two smaller events each year, to accommodate those who have busier calendars. Or perhaps just one huge BookFest at a different location... We'll just have to wait and see how it all plays out. These are the attending authors... so far...
