Melbourne, FL, July 2019 – Five Barnes & Noble locations in Central Florida have joined forces with local authors for a two-day event including book signings and meet and greets. The event is an expansion of an annual event called “Summer Book Bash” that was previously held in one location in Waterford Lakes. The events will take place on July 25th and July 27th with different time slots so that everyone in the community has a chance to attend.
The partnership between the retail bookstore and the authors serves a purpose, which is to be the key event for a fundraiser benefitting the Orange County Library System. Each Barnes & Noble location will provide a portion of the proceeds in supporter sales to a library branch they’ve selected. “The authors and store teams are so excited to provide an amazing community event for readers to enjoy, and we are equally thrilled to be able to support our literacy partners at the Orange County Library System”- Kimberly Galor, Barnes & Noble Market Business Development Manager.
