BookFestPA was held on Saturday, July 16 and was a definite success. Over 2400 visitors walked through the BookFest tent to visit 24 local authors and purchase their books. Two hundred people attended the Afternoon of Mystery panel at the Presbyterian Church and smaller groups listened to the Young Adult panel at Schlow, Daryl Gregory and Paul Yeager at Hintz Alumni Center and children's author, Lindsay George. We all had a wonderful time, celebrating the wide variety of books represented.
