Attendance was brisk throughout most of the day and gave authors and readers a chance to discuss their books in person, something rare outside of book store signings. Moreover, having such a diverse group of authors in one place was a treat for me as well. Like the readers who attended, I too enjoyed the chance to chat with authors about the content of their work and the craft behind it.
On break from duty at my assigned table, I recorded a TV interview with Lissy Estrada, a new addition to the Telemundo affiliate in Columbus that will soon be airing locally produced content. Also interviewed by Lissy and producer Jason Perkins was distinguished poet Lou Suarez.
