Elizabethtown Authors from around the North Country were at the Elizabethtown Farmer’s Market July 12, celebrating the first local authors day at the site.
“I wanted to do something along with our annual customer appreciation day, and this is the first year that we have tried the local authors day,” market manager Gina Agoney said. “A lot of the authors are enjoying the day here.”
The authors said that the day was not only a chance for them to sell their books, but also to connect with their peers.
“It is an honor to be here and to have all of us here supporting each other,” Sandra Weber said.
“It is fun to meet all of the people here while selling your books,” Betsey Thomas-Train said, adding, “This is the first sunny day that we have had in a while, so that alone is a pleasure.”
“It’s great to see other authors,” Jean Arleen Bread said. “Writing is a solitary thing, so it is nice to see the other people in the region who do what you do.”
“It is great to see a bunch of writers gathered together,” Jeff Kelly said. “This is a well run farmer’s market and it is great to have a chance to be here with our works.”
“It’s fun to get together, talk and exchange some of our stories,” Sheri Amsel said. “This is something that we wanted to do and get out to markets like this.”
