Maple Valley Days was gorgeous and fun this year. The weather couldn’t have been better for hanging out at our shady booth under the tall trees and talking to readers and writers in the community. We also enjoyed the nearby vendors and made friends with Sara from Love That Image who also has a great photo essay book, Flowers of Volunteer Park Conservatory and works with book design.
Our authors, Rachel Barnard, Jeffrey Cook, Kennedy J. Quinn, Victoria Bastedo, David S. Moore and T. Tommia Wright attended the event and autographed copies of their books for readers.
Here are some photos of the weekend: (We didn’t take photos when David was there, so I’ve included one of him from an event earlier this year. Photos by Vicky, Tommia & Rachel are indicated by their initials in the caption. -Editor)

FYI: approximately 15-20k people attended Maple Valley Days this year for record attendance. I got some neato local lip balm and goat soap! Love this local event and being able to have a booth and volunteer with Maple Valley Days. Thanks everyone who came out to MVD and bought a book (or books) from us local FreeValley Publishing authors!
Fabulous! Tweeted for you.
Thanks, Mari!! 🙂
