The Ardent Writer Press participated in the Alabama Book Festival on Saturday, April 20th in Montgomery, Alabama
The Ardent Writer Press participated in a packed Alabama Book Festival this past Saturday, April 20th, in Montgomery, Alabama.
A select few authors conducted discussions about their book and signed copies for the public afterwards, including Ardent Writer Press’ own Larry Williamson! Larry discussed Legend of the Tallassee Carbine and took questions from the audience.
Other Ardent Writer attendees were Annie Laura Smith (Twilight of Honor) and her daughter, Laura, Mike Wines (Stupid Alabama) and Carol Ealons (Tuxedo Junction). Publisher Steve Gierhart and his wife, Bonny, also attended, including a reception for authors at the historic Hill House next door to the Governor’s Mansion on Friday evening before the festival. The Alabama State Council for the Arts, the Alabama Writers’ Forum, and the festival sponsored the reception.
All AWP authors visited and talked with fans. Mike took several preorders for his upcoming laugh-a-page tween novel, Stupid Alabama, while Carol Ealons visited with jazz great and friend, Doc Adams. You can see more on Carol and Mike’s author pages, and her blog on signing with Ardent Writer Press.
