2023: Enid Author Fest

Yesterday I attended the Enid Public Library’s annual Author Fest.  I was in great company with around 40 of Oklahoma’s best authors.  I’ve done this every year since its inception but every year it just keeps getting better.  I sold a few books, talked to the public, but mostly rubbed shoulders with some incredible talent.

This year prior to the festival, the library had a reception and unveiling of the Enid Writers Club’s fourth plaque.  I’ve talked about these plaques for the last few months.  They were made by noted artist, Nancy Russell and Nancy was in attendance. Mayor George Pankonin read the City of Enid’s proclamation they gave to the club for our 100th anniversary. The Friends of the Library hosted the event with a reception and I caught up with old friends.

The headlined author in attendance was Sheldon Russell who has won the Oklahoma Book Award and was named with a life-time achievement award this year by the Oklahoma Center for the Book. Sheldon is a great author, teacher, and mentor to newer authors. 

I will help with this festival forever and have always been honored to be involved in it.  Thank you Enid Public Library and all the great authors involved once again.

Now back to my writing.

What are you reading/writing this week?
