2011 Alabama Book Festival Set for April 16
MONTGOMERY, Ala.—The sixth annual Alabama Book Festival will be held in historic downtown Montgomery at Old Alabama Town on April 16, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The free public event is the state’s premier book festival—with more than 4,000 people from around Alabama converging in the capital to meet with and hear from their favorite authors and scholars.
The festival is currently reviewing potential authors for the event and plans to announce its 2011 author line-up in early February. As in years past, programs and activities will include author appearances, book signings, musical performances, and an exhibit area featuring literary organizations and vendors selling books and other items of interest to booklovers. Alabama Public Television has agreed to host the children’s activity area again, making it a day of fun for the whole family.
Sponsors are needed to make the non-profit event a success. Those interested in contributing monetary or in-kind donations should contact Gail Waller at firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers will be solicited in January 2011. For more information, call 1-888-240-1850.
