7th Annual Author Hop & Merry Mitten Holiday Event

socializing-at-the-author-hopOur biggest event of the year! Meet area authors, chat over refreshments, pick up a new book (signed books make great gifts!). Mystery, memoir, contemporary fiction and local history will all be represented. Children’s authors & Illustrators will take over our annex for a concurrent Merry Mittens event in conjunction with the SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators).

This year’s confirmed authors include Mark Nepo, Bonnie Jo Campbell, Joe Heywood and Kelly Fordon. We are also featuring children’s book authors and illustrators: Ruth Barshaw, Leslie Helakowski, Kristen Remenar, Matt Faulkner and more. Author Hop is an day long, multi-genre open house author event held annually at Kazoo Books’ Parkview location. Complementary groups of regional authors take to the floor in shifts, mingling and participating in casual Q&A. Readers get the opportunity to chat with their favorite authors as well as exposure to new work relevant to their interests. Over the years, Author Hop has been enormously successful, bringing in visitors from all over country. Kazoo Books is located at 2413 Parkview Avenue, Kalamazoo, (269) 553-6506.

Hope to see fans there.  Merry Christmas. Over.
