New Jersey authors will sign books and talk to visitors at the New Providence Book Festival on Sunday, September 22, 2019. The festival, located on the grounds of the historic Salt Box Museum, will include a series of talks by authors Lisa Romeo, Elissa Matthews and David Watts. Other authors signing their books include Bert Abbazia, J.R. Bale, Linda Barth, Robert Ciampi, Michael Stephen Daigle, Reyna Favis, Vivian Fransen, Kerry Gans, Kristina Garlick, Laura Kaighn, Angela LaCarrubba, Bob Mayers and Jenn Stroud Rossmann.
“We wanted to create an event that connects authors with readers in a very personal way,” explained J.R. Bale, author and one of the organizers of the event. “With 16 authors of various genres, it should be a stimulating event for even the most casual book lover. Last year’s festival was very well received. And this year, we expect to top ourselves.”
Anyone purchasing a book at the festival will also receive a free raffle ticket for drawings for a $50 gift certificate for Moe’s Bistro and a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card donated by author Bill Powers. Other vital festival sponsors include the Lantern Hill retirement community, Balefire Communications LLC, and Book Lovers Dispatch.
The festival will be held on the grounds of the Salt Box Museum at 1350 Springfield Avenue from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. The rain date is September 29, 2018. The Salt Box Museum, the site of the festival, is operated by the New Providence Historical Society, will be open for tours, free of charge. Refreshments will be available on the grounds.
