Ben Wheeler Book Fair 2 Planned Nov. 30 in Art Jam


The second annual Ben Wheeler Book Fair is scheduled for Nov. 30 this year in conjunction with the 279 Art Jam in Edom and Ben Wheeler.

The book fair features general fiction, historical fiction, Christian mystery and fiction, mystery, suspense, western, romantic mystery, humor, inspirational/self help, poetry, short fiction, music criticism, essays, romance, detective, children’s fiction and poetry, photography and more.

Among evaluation comments from authors after the 2012 fair were these: “The school was well set up for the event; enough space and a festive atmosphere . . . the overall organization and effort that went into this with the marketing/PR, etc. was very impressive . . . Thanks for the opportunity to show my works and mingle with other writers . . . Attendance was better than I expected. Having participated in several such events, as well as organizing one myself, I know how hard it can be to get people to come . . . The setup was very good and conducive to lots of sales . . . publicity leading up to the event was as good as any of the other book signing venues of which I have been a part . . . well worth the time to be there . . . I was pleasantly surprised at the number of people that attended.”

Twenty to 25 authors will be invited to sell, sign, and talk about their books and the writing and publishing processes. It’s free to attend, and it’s from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the historic and beautifully restored Elwood School House, 5475 FM 858 in downtown Ben Wheeler.
