Trinity Preparatory School is presenting their Second Annual Author Festival! On April 7th, Trinity is bringing some of our favorite authors to Winter Park, Florida for an afternoon event you won’t want to miss. Jenn Marie Thorne, Lauren Gibaldi, Christina Farley, Lynne Matson, JJ Howard and many, many more! We’ve got everything you need to know to attend.

The Event

Trinity Preparatory School’s second annual Author Festival will take place on Friday, April 7, 2017 from 3 – 6 p.m. in the Trinity Prep Library. The event is FREE and open to the public. Last year’s event boasted 14 YA and Middle Grade authors and 300 attendees. This year’s festival is shaping up to be even bigger and better. Event planners, Reba Gordon, librarian, and English 8 & YA Lit Teacher, Georgia Parker, have crafts, music, a photo booth, and book signings scheduled, in addition to several panels in which authors will discuss their writing process, the path to publication, and the importance of reading.
Kim Britt, owner of local Orlando bookstore, Bookmark It, will be on hand selling books. Bring a book from home to be signed, or buy one the day of the festival. A price list, as well as a schedule of panels, will be available April 1.
