If you’ve ever attended The Chronicle Book Fair in Glens Falls, you’ll remember the warmth and hospitality of Cathy DeDe, former arts editor and current managing editor. She’s been organizing the event for many years and does an excellent job.
Calling all authors! Cathy recently sent out her annual email asking authors in the region to sign up for the book fair, which will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 7 at the Queensbury Hotel. The book fair basically takes over the entire first floor with tables to meet the authors and buy signed books and rooms where the public can hear panel discussions and author presentations. It is free and open to the public.
The table fees this year will remain the same as last year: $25 for individual authors; $25 for booksellers/publishers/non-profits with fewer than five titles to sell; $45 for booksellers/publishers/non-profits with five or more titles; and free for non-profit groups who are not planning to sell anything at their tables. The fee must be paid by Friday, Oct. 22. The sign-up isn’t official until The Chronicle receives your table fee.
Cathy wrote: “Again last year, more than 120 authors, book sellers, publishers and non-profit groups participated in the Chronicle Book Fair. We’re expecting a good turn-out again for the anniversary year! It is possible that we will run out of space. Please don’t be left out. Be sure to get all of your sign-up forms to us as soon as possible. Please note that The Chronicle reserves the right to select the mix of authors, book sellers and other presenters we believe will best serve the local reading public.”
