There must be something in the water because the Delaware River Valley is flooded with talented authors and several will be on hand to discuss their work at The Authors Room during Milford ALIVE on Saturday, Sept. 27th.
“This is the second year The Book Garden is hosting The Authors Room and we are looking forward to another great turnout,” said Robert Rando, owner of the Indie bookshop, located in neighboring Frenchtown. “We are very fortunate to have so many incredible authors living in our community and to be able to meet more than a dozen in one afternoon is exciting for book lovers.”
Stop by the Authors Room in front of the Milford Train Station from noon until 6pm to meet an old or soon-to-be favorite author – or in many cases ‘author/artist – including: Barbara Steingas, Kathryn Finegan Clark, Janet Cargill, Phoebe Wilcox, Denise Ann Saldutti Egielski, Edward F. Petersen, Keith Strunk, Kathi Kurz, Christina Paul and many more. For a complete list visit the Authors Room online at www.milfordalive.com.
Also visiting will be Nicole Smith from Room to Read, an organization that works with communities and local governments across Asia and Africa to develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children. Room to read also supports girls to help them complete secondary school with the life skills they’ll need to succeed in school and beyond. The Book Garden will be raffling off a copy of Creating Room to Read, written by the organization’s founder John Wood.
