Book Lovers Unite

Book lovers -- both the readers and writers thereof -- will be uniting at the Selby Library this coming Saturday, March 6th, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. to celebrate the "Paint The Town Read" day.

As the web posting says, "Enjoy refreshments, gift bags, a raffle, a book swap, a huge book sale, book discussions, performances and the chance to meet more than 20 authors."

The schedule of events includes performances by the Asolo Repertory Theatre Guild Play Readers at 12 noon and an event simply called "Books Alive!" at 2 p.m.

Thirty minute book discussions will start at 11:30 with the last one scheduled for 2:00. The variety of discussions will include Classics, Mysteries, Historical Fiction, Florida Authors, Publishing, and Literary Fiction.

Author Signings and Books sales will be ongoing throughout the day from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
