Easton Book Festival is Nearly Upon Us!

In less than two weeks, Firebringer Press author Phil Giunta will be joining fellow members of the Greater Lehigh Valley Writers Group (GLVWG) at the Easton Book Festival in downtown Easton, PA to participate in what is essentially a two-day writers conference, organized by GLVWG. 

All solo sessions will take place at the Northampton Community College (NCC) building on 3rd Street near The Crayola Experience on Saturday and Sunday, 10/26 – 10/27, with a few discussion panels and critique sessions to be held at other venues nearby. Throughout the weekend, books written by the presenters will be available for sale at the GLVWG table at Northampton Community College. 

Of course, there are scores of other events happening that weekend throughout the town. The full festival program can be found here.
