Next weekend southern Oregonians will have a chance to check out the new Oregon Book and Author Fair, the event formerly known (when it was help at the Ashland Springs Hotel) as the Southern Oregon Book and Author Fair. The location at the Jackson County Expo Park in Central Point and new format is exciting and ambitious.
There will be local authors and two headliners—Oregon’s Poet Laureate Paulann Peterson and Shakespeare scholar Dr. Mary Maher.
The 2011 Oregon Book and Author Fair is open from 10 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 5th.
And before or after you go, check out the Annual Holiday Book Sale and Silent Auction at the Ashland Branch of the Jackson County Public Library. The books are like-new and there’s a silent auction of assorted book-related gift baskets which you can check out in advance. It starts on Saturday, November 5, at 12 noon (till 4 p.m.) resumes on Sunday, November 6 at noon (till 3 p.m, with bidding closed at 2).
Two good causes and an opportunity to get a jump on your holiday shopping. What’s on your holiday book wish list?
