One Book Bucks is a new community reading event currently taking place in Bucks County. Each year, the One Book Bucks committee will select a book for the community to read and discuss together through a series of programs and events.
This year you can join your friends and neighbors — including younger readers and children — by reading “The Art of Racing in the Rain” by Garth Stein, the story of Enzo, the dog with a nearly-human soul.
We are hosting two local Author Expos this November and are looking for authors who would like to participate. The Expos will take place on:
- Saturday, November 9, 1 to 3 p.m. at the Quakertown Branch
- Saturday, November 16, 1 to 3 p.m. at the Yardley-Makefield Branch
All professionally-published and self-published authors (fiction, nonfiction, local history, and children’s books) from the area are eligible to apply with priority given to Bucks County residents. Authors can promote their published work(s), meet with members of the local community, interact with other writers, and sign and sell copies of their books during the events.
We will provide each author with a table and two chairs. Authors are responsible for creating their own display and making change for book purchases.
To apply, complete the application and submit it online by Sunday, September 29, 2019.
