ReadersMagnet’s The Festival of Storytellers is not just a virtual book fair to showcase authors and titles.
ReadersMagnet is no stranger to book fairs. Over the course of its existence, it has taken part in multiple national and international book fairs, including the Miami Book Fair, the Los Angeles Festival of Books, Tucson Festival of Books, Frankfurt International Book Fair, and many other book shows and exhibitions. But why do we do it? Why do authors participate in such an event? Is it merely to exhibit one’s books? Sell copies? Or to simply rub elbows with prominent figures? Book fairs more than that. With The Festival of Storytellers just a few weeks away, it is nice to remind ourselves of several reasons why attending TFOS 2021 is good for authors like you.
