Carlisle Celebrate the Book Festival
The Celebrate the Book Festival is an indoor book festival that will be held October 22 in Carlisle, Pennsylvania and presented by the Friends of Bosler Memorial Library. MBPA has reserved a table to display member books and give out catalogs. Use this form to register for us to display your book on the MBPA table.
If any authors plan to attend the festival in person, we recommend that you reserve an author table directly from the festival. We evaluated the possibility of arranging a separate table for author signings as we have at other festivals, but because the Celebrate the Book Festival offers special rates for authors, we believe that it would be a better deal for authors who want to attend the festival in person to reserve their own table for the day. Authors can reserve 1/2 table for only $25 for the entire day. This low price is only available to authors; publishers would pay $100 for a table for the day. The festival is indoors and provides tables, so very little setup will be required.
To reserve your own table at the booth, go to http://www.celebratethebook.org/ and click on "Vendor Information Packet". The deadline to register with the festival for your own table is October 8. (See below for the deadline to register with MBPA to display your books at our table).
Authors reserving a table can request on the form to be near the MidAtlantic Book Publishers Association booth if you want, and the festival will do their best to honor such requests. Two authors reserving a half table can also request to be placed together. This is a good opportunity for authors with complementary books to co-market their books.If you'd like to find a compatible author to share a table with, you can post on our Discussion forum.
