Canterbury Book Fair offers opportunities for authors, readers

Speaking at Canterbury Book Fair luncheon 2011

I’m thrilled to be asked to return as a featured author at the 2012 Canterbury Book Fair scheduled for April 16 from 4-7pm. This special day/time is an opportunity for local librarians/teachers to peruse books recommended by Canterbury staff and parents.

If all goes as planned, I will have copies of all of my books for sale at $15.00 each; autographed copies are available. I also plan to offer food samples from recipes from my Recipe and Craft Guide to Indonesia book. I’ll be easy to find with the good smells of spicy food and me wearing a chef’s apron with my book’s cover on the front!

Recipe and Craft Guide to Indonesia contains 10 crafts/ 10 recipes.

These photos are from my appearance in 2011 as the fair’s Guest Author. I spoke at a luncheon of parents, school staff, and volunteers totaling an estimated 80 people. What a joy it was to discuss children’s books with so many caring individuals!

The book fair is open to the public Tuesday, April 17 through Thursday, April 21 from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. On Wednesday, April 18, evening hours extend until 8 p.m. The week’s activities include book talks by local authors, food from local chefs, and art by local artists.

My friend Laurie Gray is the author of the Young Adult novel, Summer Sanctuary.

I’d love to speak to more students about the joys of reading and writing. Please contact me at ****** for more information.
