The annual Ben Wheeler Book Fair features about 25 East Texas authors. Works span genres including children’s books, Christian fiction, horror, humor, mystery, poetry, romance, and young adult fiction. Nonfiction authors include biography, children’s advocacy, memoir, music and culture, photography, and self help. Authors are screened to ensure quality and visitors have opportunity for one-on-one time with the authors. The third book fair was held on November 29th, 2014, in the restored Old Elwood Schoolhouse in downtown Ben Wheeler, Tx., sharing space with the Ben Wheeler Children’s Library.
I have been part of this book fair since it started in 2012. This year I brought my photography books “On the Edge of the Piney Woods”, “My Northeast Texas”, “The Dancing Trees”, and “A Legacy of Faith,” along with notecards and photography works. I had a great time meeting and visiting with fellow authors and visitors.
