During the winter season, we host a monthly Local Author Day. You can find photographs and press coverage of past events in our News Archive.
Authors and readers gather for Florida Bookstore Day at Sandman Book Company in Punta Gorda, FL on November 16, 2014. Attending writers included Diane Gilbert Madsen, Pamela Dow, Myrna Lou Goldbaum, KG Dowling, Deborah Smith Ford, Carole Stevens Bibisi, Malclom J. Brenner, and more.
The purpose of our Local Author Day is to promote books by local ("Florida") writers, especially those who are independently published. In order to draw attention to these titles, we usually offer a 20% discount on all books in our Florida sections on Local Author Day.
