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.
BookFest Date: Saturday, June 23, 2018
BookFest Time: Noon to 6pm
BookFest Location: Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie 174 Bowers Street Clawson, MI 48017 The Eagles Aerie is located directly behind The Scriptorium (to the east), and there is ample parking at both buildings to accommodate attending readers. Attending authors are requested to please park at The Scriptorium. The Eagles Aerie is wheelchair accessible with a ramp at their front door, and support animals are welcome. The Eagles Aerie is a non-smoking facility.
BookFest Tickets: They're FREE! Yup, you'll be able to get in free, and browse all day! Meet Michigan Authors and have them sign your books! When you're done at the BookFest, hop on over to The Scriptorium and discover our used book collection.
Food & Beverages: Food and Beverages (aside from bottled water, or candy dishes on authors' tables for visitors) will not be permitted inside the Eagles Aerie. However, throughout the day, an appetizer table along with assorted sweet & salty snacks, Keurig hot beverages, plus cold soda, juice, and water will be available at the Scriptorium. If you get hungry or thirsty, jog next door to The Scriptorium, satiate your appetite, and then return to browse more books by Michigan Authors!
BookFest Raffle: Throughout the day at The Scriptorium and at The BookFest, we'll be hosting a raffle. Drop your business card, or our handy intro card into one of the boxes at either location and you may be the winner of a prize. Prizes are drawn every hour during the BookFest day, in both locations, and include things like a Kindle Fire, Scriptorium Gift Certificates, Restaurant Gift Cards, Books, and other nifty things we know you'll enjoy!
