Kerrytown BookFest Reception And Exhibit Opening 2017

Friday September 8, 2017: 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm -- Downtown Library: 3rd Floor Open Area

This event is intended for grade 9 - adult

Join us for a pre-BookFest reception for the 15th annual Kerrytown BookFest!

This event will include:

• elegant refreshments

• exquisite music by harpist Deborah Gabrion

• the grand opening of Kerrytown BookFest Cover Contest Exhibit at the Library which showcases entries from the BookFest’s annual Book Cover Design contest for high school students. The contest, open to all Michigan High School students, asks the students to re-imagine a cover for a chosen book and give a visual interpretation to the written word. The contest winners will be announced at the reception.

This year students were asked to create a new cover for Last Seen Leaving, the YA novel by Caleb Roehrig which is set in Ann Arbor. This year’s judges were author Caleb Roehrig; Cover designer and writer Molly McCaffery, and children’s book expert Jackie LaRose. Ms. La Rose will assist cover contest coordinator Robin Agnew in announcing the winners.

The Kerrytown BookFest, which will be held on Sunday, September 10, is an event celebrating those who create books and those who read them. The primary goal is to highlight the area’s rich heritage in the book and printing arts while showcasing local and regional individuals, businesses, and organizations.

Begin the celebration! Attend this reception which is open to all!
