Sandwich, MA - The Literary Arts Group of the Sandwich Arts Alliance will be holding a Village Book Festival with live music on the lawn of the Sandwich Public Library on Saturday October 13th  from 12:00 to 3:00 pm. This outdoor event, free to the public, features local, published authors presenting their books which will be on display and for sale.  

Included on the list of local, published authors who will be in attendance at the festival are Christie Lowrance: “Nature’s Ambassador - The Legacy of Thornton W. Burgess”;  Kathryn Kleekamp: “Cape Cod & The Islands - Where Beauty & History Meet”;  Carolyn LeComte: “Never Invite A Seagull to Lunch”;   Dean Coe: “Chesterton Saves The Bunnies”;  Dr. Robert Reece: "Double Blind, Double Cross", Alexandra Speck: “Honor Girl: A Novel" and Donna Rockwell: “Seeing Stars”.

According to Carolyn LeComte, event manager, the Village Book Festival is meant to help local authors sell their books and bring Sandwich Arts Alliance members and non-members together, and there will be plenty of books of every genre and for all ages to browse through, to be inspired by or to give as holiday gifts.

"There isn't a better way to spend part of an autumn afternoon with family and friends than to browse through the large selection of books written by local authors, chatting with them, and enjoying some cider and donuts. Come enjoy the Village Book Festival, and perhaps take home an autographed book or two!”, says LeComte.

The afternoon’s festivities will be enhanced by the live acoustic music performed by SAA Members, Nils Soderberg and Norm Silva.

Local, published authors, SAA members and non-members alike, are invited to participate by registering at ($20 for members, $25 for non-members).
