Hello, all! Autumn Leaves: The 24th annual Glens Falls Chronicle Book Fair is Sunday, Nov. 3, 2019, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Queensbury Hotel in downtown Glens Falls. We hope you can join us!

Now is the time to sign up officially!
The table fees are the same as last year: • $30 for a half of an eight-foot table (recommended for individual authors or booksellers/publishers/non-profits with fewer than five titles to sell). • $50 for a full eight-foot table (typically booksellers/publishers/non-profits with large displays). • Free for non-profit groups that are not planning to sell anything at their tables. 
Contact me with any questions, if you think you’ll need something different than recommended, or more than one eight-foot table. 

Your sign-up isn’t official until we receive your table fee. The fee must be paid by Friday, Oct. 25. Mail a check to The Chronicle Book Fair, P.O. Box 153, Glens Falls NY 12801. Or charge it to your Visa or Mastercard, by phoning The Chronicle at (518) 792-1126. Please, for safety’s sake, do not email credit card information!

Sign up now! It is possible that we will run out of space. More than 120 authors, book sellers, publishers and non-profit groups typically participate each year. Please note: The Chronicle reserves the right to select the mix of authors, book sellers and other presenters we believe will best serve the local reading public.

How does it work? Tables, chairs and tablecloths are provided. Electrical outlets are plentiful. We provide advance publicity in the paper, on our Chronicle Facebook page, the Chronicle Book Fair Facebook, and on our Chronicle Website (www.glensfallschronicle.com). 

The rest is up to you! Plan to bring a display, cash box and change for selling books, a Square or other credit card reader, and anything else to promote yourself and your book(s). We encourage costumes, give-aways, hand-outs, games, music, kids’ activities — anything interesting. It helps the event, and it helps you! 
Most authors sell their own books, but if you cannot, we can help arrange a Plan B.
We hope that all presenters will be there for the full day. If you do need to arrive later or leave early, we understand. Please let me know.

  2. In site material writing, writing film evaluations can be fun.
    We all enjoy to enjoy films and often we wish to know what other’s viewpoints are about
    a particular movie prior to choosing whether to see
    the film or not. For that reason short article blogging about a movie you viewed will help others to make a decision. Let’s go over some suggestions to write an excellent film review.

    Everybody have varied opinions about a film. Post composing an evaluation offers you a way to reveal your opinion and
    also assists others to understand about the exact same.
