Hours are from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Exact location to be determined.

More than a dozen talented authors will be on hand to discuss, sign, and sell their work on a variety of subjects including mystery, thriller, humor, religion, art, science, history, poetry, and memoir.

    The signing was held at a good location with plenty of foot traffic. Some authors sold a lot of books while others only sold one or none. Some authors were more proactive in attracting people to their table while others were more laid back. But it's not just about selling books, it's also about meeting people. I met a lot of writers I didn't know before and some people stopped by the tables to learn more about FAW. I thought it was a great experience.
