Open BooK: The Annual Authors Literary Festival, Part 1


Here it is, a new webisode of Open Book. This webisode was filmed at the 4th Authors Literary Festival in Richmond VA. The festival was a two day event with a Friday night Pre Festival Meet & Greet Party and Saturday was the actual festival. My special guest host was Mrs. Loretta R. Walls author and CEO of Nu Cherte Publishings. Mrs. Walls did a splendid job as a first time host. I did coach her just a little bit. The event had guest speakers, and a face painter for the kids. There were 38 published authors at this event topped off with a Book Cover Model Auction and dinner date. All proceeds raised was donated to Cancer Research.
