Last December, I had the (highly stressful!) honor of organizing the Haverhill Public Holiday Bookfear. This River City Writers Event, which was open to the general public and absolutely free to attend, brought together authors, artists, publishers, editors, collectors and fans in a celebration of the holidays and of the written word. Authors read all day, AMAZING door prizes were raffled off (and I do mean AMAZING; we gave away a Kindle Fire HD!), and money was raised for the Haverhill Public Library. To say it was a great way to kick off the holiday season would be an understatement!
Participating authors and artists included:
Barr Leey DeJasu
Craig Shaw Gardner
I cannot emphasize enough how proud I am of the success of the Bookfear and how rewarding I found the experience (although again, albeit stressful!). All of us involved with Haverhill Hill Publishing look forward to being a part of events like this one — events that not only bring our literary community together, but expand it — in the future.
