HAWLEY - The Second Annual AuthorFest at the historic Hawley Silk Mill on Saturday, Feb. 14, will showcase twenty-seven area authors.

The morning will be devoted to workshops starting at 9:30 a.m., and in the afternoon the authors will be available to meet the public.

From 9:30 to 10:30 a.m., Workshop I – How to Write a “Best Seller” - will feature a panel of published writers who will share their wisdom, expertise and experiences that have led to their own successful works.

From 10:45 to 11:45 a.m., Workshop II – Traditional Publishing vs. Self-Publishing:How to Choose.

A second panel of authors, many of whom have used both routes to publication, will discuss the pros and cons, answer questions and offer tips for success.

From 12 to 3 p.m., the twenty-seven authors will be available for a “meet and greet” with the public, and their books will be for sale in a “book shop” manned by members of the Hawley Rotary.

Admission is free. For more information, email yannster@ptd.net or call (570-253-5468).
