Franklin Book Festival

Franklin Book Festival 2019 - June 1 (10am to 5pm) & June 2 (1pm to 5pm)
Williamson County Public Library - 1314 Columbia Ave, Franklin, Tennessee 37064

I hope to see you at this weekend’s Franklin Book Festival.


Of all my mysteries, the one I like best is: The Claret Murders. I will have a limited number of library quality hardcover editions of that book and others available for purchase during the event. And, for wine lovers, there will also be a special treat. I will be giving away a 33-year-old claret from my personal wine collection—a Chateau Certan from the French Pomerol region of Bordeaux.

I’m just one of over forty local authors who will be participating in the Franklin Book Festival. Stop by my signing table, pick up a free American flag pin and enter the drawing for the wonderful claret. You don’t have to buy anything to enter the drawing for the wine.

Book lovers will find plenty of bargain opportunities to build their collection of books signed by authors. Participating authors will be displaying their works and talking with attendees about the art and business of the book world. Many authors will offer their novels at a discounted event price and sign their books for you. For example, my library quality signed novels go for $29.00, but you can purchase one at the event for only $15.00. In addition, you can take home a paperback edition for only $5.00. My book, The Language of Excellence, called one of the best five books on management and leadership, regularly priced at $39.00 will also be available at the Festival for $15.00. Of course, on site quantities are limited, so these bargains are only available as long as the Festival inventories last. If you already own one of my books, bring it and I’ll sign it for you.
