Local Writers Invited to "Author's Corner" at the Fair

OLYMPIA - Thurston County authors are invited to take part in a special gathering this summer. There will be an "Author's Corner" at this year's county fair (August 1-5), featuring only Thurston County authors. Writers can bring their books to sell and/or sign, talk to their fans, and generally promote their books. Participants will be signed up for 4-hour shifts (10-2, 2-6, or 6-10pm) and will be housed in the Heritage Hall annex.

Fair staff is now extending the invitation to any Thurston County authors who might like to participate. If interested, contact Ann Shipley at avshipley@comcast.net or 360-791-6086 for further information and application forms.
