There will be dozens of published authors signing autographed copies of their books! There will be facepainting! There will be panels on how to get your writing started and publishing your book! It's a day of upliftment and advancement. Bring your father to celebrate Father's Day with a good book.

This is a great opportunity to learn more about a writer's life, their process of writing and even learning how you can write your book! Or you can come out and have some fun with your friends during the karaoke session or support and enjoy those who will participate in the Open Mic.
