When I first went the book festival I had no idea what a book festival was. I wandered around the little booths and grabbed a bit to eat at one of the many food trucks. Over the next few years I have discovered the secret of the festival. I love books, old books, new books, books, books! Besides all the books, authors and talks there is food and the art! So here’s the secret – show up, spend as much time as you can enjoy depending on the weather. Check out a new book (get a book signed), watch a food demonstration, watch a performance on the center stage. Make sure you grab something at the food trucks before you leave.
