The festival is currently reviewing potential authors for the event and plans to announce its 2011 author line-up in early February. As in years past, programs and activities will include author appearances, book signings, musical performances, and an exhibit area featuring literary organizations and vendors selling books and other items of interest to booklovers. Alabama Public Television has agreed to host the children’s activity area again, making it a day of fun for the whole family.
Sponsors are needed to make the non-profit event a success. Those interested in contributing monetary or in-kind donations should contact Gail Waller at email@example.com. Volunteers will be solicited in January 2011. For more information, call 1-888-240-1850.

A word from Miss Lena: The library has had a booth at the festival for the past two years and will again this year. It is a wonderfully fun event that brings authors and readers together. Delightful. Simply delightful!
