It's back!

We are currently seeking authors for our Summer 2015 Local Author Festival. Our survey for authors closes at 10:00 am on Friday, April 3, 2015

Last year, we focused on the publishing process. This year, the focus is on THE READER EXPERIENCE. Genres for this year's festival will be determined AFTER the survey closes. This allows for the largest number of applicants and genre combinations.

Authors will not be paid for their appearance, but may sell their books.

INSTEAD of a book fair this year, EIGHT authors will be chosen for the AUTHORS IN TENTS program during our Farmers Market. Authors may participate in the AUTHORS IN TENTS on Mondays from 4pm-7pm without participating in the festival itself. During the Farmers Market, authors will sign and sell their work OUTSIDE. All sales are the responsibility (money, taxes, processing) of the author. The library will not serve as a middleman for the transaction.

Completing this survey is not a guarantee of admission to the festival. Each evening will feature 3-4 authors discussing their work for 20 minutes each. The focus is HOW YOU CREATE AN EXPERIENCE FOR YOUR READERS. Authors may sell their work on their appointed evening.

Please take a moment to complete this survey, referring to the book you would like to have featured at the festival. Preference will be give to FARMINGTON VALLEY authors first.

This survey closes the at 10:00 am on Friday, April 3, 2015. We will notify you of your acceptance and details on the event during the month of May. LATE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.
