Book lovers, the Great Hall is calling you.
More than 80 authors are expected to participate and sign books at the Dayton Book Expo this weekend.
"Having served thousands of authors, I know the most-difficult aspect of the book business is marketing,” Valerie J. Lewis Coleman, the event’s co-founder, said. “Without an effective plan to identify, locate and connect with readers, authors struggle to magnify and monetize their message. Dayton Book Expo was created to connect book lovers with authors and promote literacy in a family-friendly environment."
Coleman — the author and professional speaker behind the PenOfTheWriter.com — and her partners will present the ninth annual book expo from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 28 in the Great Hall at Sinclair Community College’s Ponitz Conference Center building 12, 444 West Third St., downtown Dayton.
The family-friendly event is free and open to the public.
It includes panels on writing, marketing and self-publishing; a kids zone play area, an award ceremony, a youth writing contest and author signings.
