Mark your calendars now for the annual Vegas Valley Book Festival, to be held Oct. 16-18 in downtown Las Vegas. The largest annual literary event in Las Vegas, the book festival will bring together a wide variety of literary genres and cultural programs, with most events taking place at the Historic Fifth Street School at 401 S. Fourth St. The festival is expected to feature more than 165 authors and 100 events, including panel discussions, keynote speakers, readings, book signings, workshops, vendor exhibits, art exhibitions, spoken word performances and other special programs for a diversity of genres, ages and cultural backgrounds. Most events are free and open to the public.
The keynote speakers will include New York Times (NYT) and international No. 1 best-selling author Sylvia Day in conversation with NYT and USA Today best-selling author Tracy Wolff, and best-selling novelist and short-story writer Aimee Bender.
BeyondAusten.com is sponsoring a Jane Austen tent on Saturday, Oct 18th, from 10-4. Our goal is to bring Jane Austen to Vegas. We expect it will be a very exciting event. There will be Jane Austen inspired prizes handed out every half an hour. There will be three amazing authors in attendance to sign books, answer questions, and take pictures. In addition, three other Austen Authors will have their books available for purchase.
So stop on by to see Diana, Jenni, and Joy; and pick up some books from Robin, Sarah, and Wendi. Don’t forget to enter to win some prizes from the Jane Austen Gift Shop, some of Evie Cotten’s handmade Darcy &. Elizabeth soaps, and jewelry from Etsy.
