2006 Fox Valley Authors Fair

The Author's fair is slated for May 21 2006, which is a Sunday, from 1 to 4 PM. Same as last year's, it will be held at the Batavia library, with the fair in the large hall and the reading held outside on the cafe's patio (weather permitting). I will be officially MC ing the author's reading series. There are over 35 local authors signed up this year. My plan is to release a chapbook "Folklore of Twilight, Illinois," a souvenir pamphlet with an essay, bio and website directions (finances permitting).  A full book "Dreams Cast Shadows", perfect bound, is in the works for Christmas-New Years release .
