Authors from Illinois, Iowa, Florida, Indiana, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Maryland, and local authors will participate in this event. Many of the authors are award-winning authors, best-selling authors, and well established authors with multiple titles. All of the authors will sell and sign their books on site.
