Parisian Phoenix Publishing Company is starting to get very excited about the upcoming Lehigh Valley Book Festival this Saturday.
The free, open to the public and family event will feature a cornucopia of authors across genres. The link in the first paragraph will take you to their web page.
Just the vendor expo alone— happening from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.— will feature 30 local entities ranging from us (with all seven of our titles) to Feline Urban Rescue and Rehab, the “cat group” with which publisher Angel Ackerman volunteers. (The cat on our website is still available for adoption, FYI.)
The registration proceeds from the vendor fair benefit Lehigh Valley Reads, so if you can swing by Bethlehem Area Public Library and checking out these organizations it should be a diverse group.
Angel Ackerman and Gayle Hendricks, founders of Parisian Phoenix, will be at the event and several other Parisian Phoenix authors/creatives hope to stop by. Those authors will be available to sign their books.
Just a reminder of the titles currently available:
- Manipulations, Courting Apparitions and Recovery, the first three volumes in Angel Ackerman’s Fashion and Fiends series. (Paranormal chick lit)
- Twists: Gathered Ephemera, Darrell Parry’s full-length poetry book
- Trapped, a contemporary romance set in a dying steel town, by Seneca Blue
- Not an Able-Bodied White Man with Money, a non-fiction anthology featuring various Lehigh Valley marginalized voices from queer to disabled. The volume tackles heavy issues like mental health and ethnic identity in short, accessible pieces.
- Stops along the Way, a Jewish memoir by 95-year-old Charles Ticho that begins in Moravia, continues with the Holocaust, and ends in the United States with Charles and his family starting over and Charles building a career in film production.
All books will be $10 each at the festival. Cash or credit card accepted.
