Our local writers’ organization, SWAG Writers, is holding a Bookfair this Saturday, April 27, from 10am to 5pm, at 16 W. Beverley St., right in the heart of downtown Staunton. More than 20 local writers will be on hand to talk about their work, the writing process, and, of course, to sell and sign copies of their books.
Some of the authors who will be there are Sarah Kennedy, R.T. Smith, Betsy Ashton, Linda Levokove, Phyllis Anne Duncan, Stan Galloway, Nicholas Galloway, Bruce Wetterau, William Wood, Matthew Warner, Chuck Welsh, Jennie Coughlin, Deborah Conner, Jonathan Rintels, Paul Klein, and Maurice McFadden, along with local publishers Lot’s Wife, Cedar Creek Books, and Deep Kiss Press.
The event is sponsored by SWAG Writers, Staunton Downtown Development Association, and the four downtown independent bookstores: Barrister Books, Black Swan Books, Bookworks, and the Sacred Circle.
Buyers at the fair will receive a coupon good for 15% off one book at all four stores–potentially a very valuable coupon!
