[Motown Writers Network] Dayton Book Expo: Call for Authors and Sponsors

Dayton Book Expo

Where book lovers connect 
Greetings, Book Lover!

As you probably know, my passion is to help others reach their potential. With that said, I have taken on yet another collaboration.
I know. I know. "If Valerie does one more thing..." 
We couldn't help ourselves. We have traveled to many cities as participating authors at city-wide book events. Each time wondering why Dayton doesn't have a similar platform to connect book lovers and authors. Well, time out for waiting. We're taking action!
The first Dayton Book Expo will occur on May 1, 2010 in the great City of Dayton! The all-day event includes panel discussions for aspiring authors, activities for children at Kidz Zone and book signings!

We have already received significant support and anticipate over 1,000 book lovers to attend the Dayton Book Expo (DBE). The event will be free and open to public.
Can't wait to see you!
