Events: North Idaho Authors at North Idaho Fair

Filling every corner of the spacious Kootenai County Fairgrounds in Coeur d’Alene, the North Idaho Fair is underway this weekend. Not only will you find live music, carnival rides and games, delicious food, arts and crafts, livestock, contests and community exhibits, but you will also find a booth displaying the work of some of our North Idaho authors.

The booth was coordinated by Michael Marsden (The North Idaho Ghost Writer) and B. J. Campbell (author of Close Calls). Because fair rules require vendors to keep their booths open for business from 10 am to 10 pm, authors will rotate throughout the weekend tending the booth. Nine authors will have books on display and share time greeting people at the fair. They include: B.J. Campbell, C.K. Crigger, Gary Edwards, Anna Goodwin, Michael Marsden, Carol Muzik, Joyce Nowacki, John Thamm, and me. This group represents authors from the Idaho Writers League, Spokane Authors and Self Publishers, and this Writing North Idaho blog.

Books displayed and sold at the booth include both nonfiction and fiction. There are children’s stories, love stories, women’s fiction, murder mysteries, memoir and even ghost stories.

Come to the fair and meet some of the authors who wish to share their books with the people of north Idaho.  In a sense that is what the fair is about---friends sharing what they have accomplished with their neighbors.

Other author events coming up within the next couple of weeks at Auntie’s Bookstore include:

Robert Donnelly presents his book Dark Rose: Organized Crime and Corruption in Portland.

Caryl Sherpa narrates a Powerpoint presentation of her memoir, I Taste Fire, Earth, Rain: Elements of Life with a Sherpa.

Niki Anderson signs copies of her book, Whiskers, Wit, and Wisdom: True Cat Tales and the Lessons They Teach.

Check the Events page of this blog for dates and times.

Have a great weekend!
