Save the Date: Payson Book Festival

By Ruth R. Fleming

Arizona Professional Writers, a state-wide nonprofit communications organization, is partnering with Gila Community College (Payson Campus) to host the second Payson Book Festival on Saturday, July 23, 2016, from 9-4 p.m. at Gila Community College in Payson, Arizona.

This Payson festival will bring Arizona authors, educators, tourists and families to our Rim Country community to celebrate the joy of reading. In addition to authors and books from a broad spectrum of genres, there will be music and food from local vendors, author presentations and book signings, as well as a children’s element. Activities will include author presentations and book signings, workshops, and a Story Time session for children.

Our goal is to promote literacy and showcase Arizona and local authors. This family-oriented community event is free of charge and will attract readers of all ages from throughout Arizona.

This will be Payson’s second major book festival. Author registrations are still open and applications are available for download.
