SOKY Book Fest Recap

Wow, the Southern Kentucky Book Fest this past weekend was a whirlwind of books and fun. I took a slew of photos of the event, and attendees who stopped by my table made a huge SOKY Salad Pie! I don’t think I’ve ever seen such interesting ingredients added (crispitos? magic? kissing"?!). Here’s my setup at the beginning of the festival:

Four of us in SOKY had our first picture books published in 2016, and were part of the debut group “On The Scene in 2016.”

These are only a few of the children’s book authors and illustrators at the festival. There were over 150 authors there.
