Volunteers Needed for 2010 Festival

The fifth annual Alabama Book Festival is gearing up for 2010 and needs volunteers to help make the April 17 event a success.
More than 50 authors, storytellers, publishers, illustrators and performers will gather at Old Alabama Town in downtown Montgomery to celebrate reading, writing and literature. The festival depends on volunteers to serve in a variety of
roles, including escorting authors, assisting at book signings, helping with children’s activities and greeting visitors at the front gate.

Volunteers must be at least 16 years old and commit to a two-hour shift. In appreciation of their efforts, visitors will receive a free festival t-shirt and the opportunity to earn a one-day admission ticket to Disney World or Disneyland, as part of Disney’s 2010 Give a Day, Get a Disney Day program. Register to volunteer online at For
questions, contact volunteer coordinator Nancy Griggs at 334-844-4946 or
