Big Fun and Book Signings at the California State Fair!
At the California State Fair, one can indulge in corn dogs, caramel apples, funnel cakes, beignets, books, deep-fried artichoke hearts, chocolate-covered bacon and, wait . . . books?! Yes, books!! And authors too! California authors!!
The California Authors Booth is one of the exhibits at the “BIG FUN” fair scheduled from July 12-28, 2013, at Cal Expo in Sacramento. Since 1998, Naida West, awarding-winning author and publisher of the California Gold Trilogy, has organized the booth located in the California Building (http://www.bigfun.org/come-to-the-fair/attractions/ca-building-exhibits/).
Featured authors will range from New York Times Best-Selling to award-winning to newly published. The California Authors exhibit serves an educational role and the authors’ mission is “to visit with and educate fairgoers about writing and publishing, and, if visitors show an interest, sign and sell books.”
Margie Yee Webb, author/photographer of Cat Mulan’s Mindful Musings: Insight and Inspiration for a Wonderful Life, is scheduled to appear along with new and returning authors. Among them is Kiyo Sato, winner of the 2008 William Saroyan International Prize for Writing in nonfiction for Dandelion Through the Crack (which was later released as Kiyo’s Story: A Japanese-American Family’s Quest for the American Dream.) The complete schedule of authors and links to their websites will be available at http://www.bridgehousebooks.com/events/statefair2013.htm.
