Coming Soon!

Are you in the Seattle area? Do you want some community fun? Do you enjoy meeting local authors? Don't miss the Morgan Junction Community Festival in beautiful West Seattle next Saturday.
Here's a news release from organizer extraordinaire, Alice Kuder: 

Morgan Junction Community Festival Welcomes Local Authors 

Where can you find Greek Gods, homicide detectives, and wanton boys all sharing one tent? This summer, they will be gathering under an awning at the Morgan Junction Community Festival.

These are just a few of the dynamic characters that West Seattle authors bring to life in their novels and memoirs for your reading pleasure in genres as diverse as fantasy, young adult fiction, poetry, and memoir.

At the one-day Festival on Saturday, June 18, a group of fifteen West Seattle authors will present their work under a banner inviting you to “Meet the Authors.”

This will be the second year for the authors’ booth located in the vendor area behind Zeek’s Pizza. Two tents will be for author presentations and a third will offer their books for sale through local bookseller, Merryweather Books. Merryweather’s also carries the books year round, with a special section of the store dedicated to local authors.

The Morgan Junction Community Festival is ‘the little festival that could.’ It is the quintessential hometown festival that would make Norman Rockwell proud. It’s so intimate they don’t even block off the streets!

Want to support a local artist? Read a book!

Participating authors listed alphabetically by first name:

Alice Ann Kuder, Allan Batchelder, Arleen Williams, Cherie Tucker, Christine Brant, Christopher Anderson, David Kannas, Gail Engebretson, Jeanette Chaplin, Lisa Richesson, Michael G.

This year we will also be having an hourly free book drawing as well as the grand prize basket at the end of the day. So stop by to hear some great stories and stock your summer reading pile.
