Battle of the Books is more than a book signing for authors of various genres. It’s a demonstration of storytelling. Date/Time: Bethlehem Area Public Library, 11 Church St. Bethlehem, PA 18018 from 2 – 4 pm.
Sponsored by the Greater Lehigh Valley Writers Group . It’s an event that allows authors to demonstrate their skill/artistry in writing various elements of storytelling. The audience gets to participate by voting on their favorites. It’s not meant to be a contest. The audience votes on which reading made the greatest impression on them for each round, and there are audience participation quizzes in which the audience is asked to identify the famous source of those same elements read from literature. Prizes are award too! Authors select in advance the best and most entertaining examples from one of their published works.
