#sokybf2016 was great! 🙂

I look forward to the Book Fest every year. It’s a wonderful day and I usually get all my Christmas shopping finished!

Great book festival this year! My family enjoyed meeting new authors and visiting with old favorites!

Loved the event. It was fun for my daughter and me.

Keep up the good work.


Loved it! I’ve found my people!

It was really fun; I learned a lot about writing. I hope we come next year! Thank you!

Great! Love all the authors!

Panels were fun and informative; great selection of authors and age ranges.
