The Payson Book Festival’s mission is to enhance the love of reading by providing a friendly environment that encourages personal interaction between Arizona authors and readers of all ages. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the scholarship funds of both non-profit organizations.
Over 80 Arizona authors will participate by signing books and visiting with readers of all ages. Some will speak about their books and the craft of writing. Authors will be in the large ballroom. There will be a full schedule of speakers and several workshops throughout the day in two separate presentation rooms.
In addition, children will have an opportunity to meet “Story Monster” and enjoy other workshops and events at the festival. Local food vendors will sell a variety of foods and snacks. This family-oriented event will include free entertainment, workshops and door prizes.
