No "Authors' Day" at State Fair, but you can sell your books at the fair's store

Kim Porter at the Wyoming Business Council has notified us about the cancellation of “Author’s’ Day” at the State Fair. Here are the details:

Dear Wyoming Authors:

We have been evaluating Wyoming Author’s Day at the Wyoming State Fair and have regretfully decided to cancel this event. The conditions are not ideal for this type of event and the competition with other events has been a challenge. We would like to continue to support the authors in the Wyoming Products Pavillion. There has always been the opportunity for authors to sell their books in this store, but it may be a little known fact. In order to highlight Wyoming authors, in 2008 we plan to put a “book store” in the products pavilion. This gives you the opportunity to sell your books for six days. Please call Annie Wood at 777-8244 for more information.

If you’re a Wyoming writer and you’re looking for a venue where you can read from your books and sell them too, you may want to sign up for a spot at the book fair set for Sept. 20 during the Equality State Book Festival in Casper. Anyone with a book in print can reserve 15-minute spot for a reading and signing at the book fair on Saturday, Sept. 20. Works from anthologies will be accepted for readings as well.

To sign up, contact kcoe@caspercollege.edu
