[EVENTS] Virtual Rhode Island Author Expo 2020

The Association of Rhode Island Authors is proud to announce that the Rhode Island Author Expo will be going virtual this year.

The Expo committee has been working hard to learn what needs to be done to put on a free virtual event.

The Rhode Island Author Expo website has been updated with a registration button, panel schedule and participating authors.

The event will be running from 10 AM – 5 PM and will be held on Zoom.

There’re author panels just like in years past along with keynote speakers and this year we’re trying something different with an author kaffeeklatsch, a nice intimate setting to sit down and talk to one of our many local authors.

I hope to see you at the Expo in December where I’ll be on two panels and a kaffeeklatsch.

You can find my schedule here.

Flyer for the 3rd Annual Rhode Island Author Expo

3rd Annual Rhode Island Author Expo

This Saturday from 11 AM to 5 PM is the 3rd Annual Rhode Island Author Expo presented by the Association of Rhode Island Authors.
This local author event will be located inside Lincoln Mall (go in the double doors between Marshalls and 5 Below).
The Expo Committee consisting of Steve and Dawn Porter, Adam Wassman, Vikki Corliss, Leigh Brown, Nora Hall, Pat Mitchel, Julien Ayotte, myself and J. Michael Squatrito Jr who I shameless “borrowed” this list from have been planning this grand event since mid-spring and I have to say we’ve done a great job.
For those who haven’t been following along with with my reposts from Martha Reynolds’ blog posts for the last month on Twitter/FB/er, well, everywhere (ignoring my website’s recent bandwidth issues, obviously), the Association of Rhode Island Authors who I’m proud to be a member of has been working hard to get local authors at events like the Scituate Art Festival for nearly four years and this Author Expo promises to be our biggest event yet!
Just a take a look at the authors over on the Expo page, we have authors from all walks of genre from non-fiction, fiction, autobiography, children, memoirs and more all under one roof with free parking and admission!
There will be raffles and even hourly panels on different writing subjects!
And just in time for holidays, these books would make great stocking stuffers!
Check out the Expo’s Facebook Event page to RSVP!
This type of event only comes once a year!
But fear not if you can’t make it!
We’ll be keeping all of the author photos up on the Expo site and those photos link back to their websites.
Remember to support your local authors this holiday season!
