Fantastic book event at the Worcester Public Library!

Written By: David T. Lee - Apr• 05•16

Greetings!

Saturday (April 2nd), from 11:00 AM to 2:30 PM, I was at the Worcester Public Library’s Local Author Fair and Bookfest 2016! I sold 12 books, gained 14 subscribers and talked to many new families! The diversity of other authors’ book genres (ranging from superhero fiction to motivational nonfiction) astonished me! Turnout was slow to start, but it greatly sped up in the last 90 minutes.

One author’s family bought all four of my books. A teacher said she would share my books with her class. A kid filled with joy when he saw my 3rd book and his mother bought it for him. A retired WPL staff bought a book and said she would donate it to the WPL’s used book store after reading it.

I would like to extend my thanks to Cynthia Staub and Laurel Dile King (artists from Artist Guild of Shrewsbury) for visiting me and critiquing the artistic quality of my first book’s pencil illustrations! Also, a big shout out to Cynthia Bermudez (WPL Adult Outreach & Programming Project Manager) for organizing this wonderful event and accepting me to be part of it!

At the end of the event I donated one copy of each of my books to the WPL’s collection.

Here are the pictures.

Bye!
