Your Favorite Authors are Back!
On Point Executive Center is Proud to Present Our 5th Annual Book Fair featuring leading authors, publishers, and community vendors!
We Invite You to a Celebration of Writing, Reading, and Local Works
TAMPA, FL. (September 13, 2019) – This September, On Point Executive Center will host its 5th Annual Book Fair at WestShore Plaza!
Join us from 10 am until 7 pm on Saturday, Sept. 21st to enjoy an impressive presentation of local authors, global publishers, and community vendors. The event will feature both fiction and non-fiction works, representing all genres and styles of writing.
Meet your favorite authors and ask those burning questions during the on-site book signing! Plus, get the scoop on all the latest projects, straight from the industry titans of the publishing world. With free admission, the 5th Annual Book Fair is designed to offer fun for the entire family – grands included!
Little ones will delight in storytelling from their favorite children’s authors, while you indulge in exclusive book signings, custom “selfie” stalls, and custom giveaways specially curated for our event. World-renowned artist Alicia Campos of Happy Art Industries will offer a limited engagement, with paint-and-take canvases available exclusively for our guests at a nominal sitting fee.
Center court entertainment will feature a complimentary, interactive performance from the Giving Tree Music drum circle. The team will also feature their mobile literacy outreach program with Bess the Book Bus, a program designed to reach the underserved communities of the Tampa Bay area.
Also lending their support is The Tampa Tropics baseball team, who will promote their “Buck a Book” fundraising initiative. With your help, they can raise the funding needed for their 2020 invitational in Cooperstown. Meet the exceptional players of the youth baseball team and get to know the young minds that are achieving success both on and off the field.
It’s just another way we work to promote and inspire literacy within the younger community, and we cannot do it alone.
“Each year, WestShore Plaza graciously provides the perfect venue for this extraordinary event benefitting both the families and artists of our community. We are immensely grateful for their continued support,” says Karen Gillman, Vice President of On Point Executive Center.
Larry Scollo, General Manager of WestShore Plaza, is excited to be involved. “WestShore Plaza is proud to showcase this event and to host a variety of family-friendly events throughout the entire year that appeals to kids and adults alike. We’re thrilled to work with our partner, On Point Executive Center, to bring the best of the literary world to Tampa-area readers of all ages and help nurture an interest in reading, writing, and imagination for the fifth year in a row.”
Karen echoes the sentiment excitedly, saying, “Once again, the Plaza corridors will fill with the buzz of local authors, bloggers, editors, and publishers, all of whom are here to meet the readers and create new fan favorites here within Tampa Bay.”
It’s a unique opportunity within the literary world, and even better, it’s right here in Tampa Bay.
