Barbara Vey Reader Appreciation Weekend
It’s just a few weeks until one of the premier reader events begins. April 29th – May 1st marks the 5th year Barbara Vey has hosted the reader focused event and while author tables sold out in hours, there are still lots of FREE events for readers.
Friday afternoon from 1-2:30 p.m. will kick off with a reader party sponsored by Winnie Griggs, Sharon Sala, Lenora Worth, Holly Jacobs and Liz Talley. This is a free event with prizes, raffles, and dozens of authors. It will be held in the Clarion Hotel’s Mitchell Room.

On Saturday, readers will be treated to a free booksigning open to the public from 3:30-4:30 p.m. Sixty authors of every genre, romance, mystery, thriller, women’s fiction, and more will be signing books. Barnes & Noble Booksellers will be on site for purchases, and you can buy books direct from many participating authors.
