The Festival of Storytellers: A Virtual Event for Authors and Booklovers
ReadersMagnet’s The Festival of Storytellers 2021 is a six-day virtual book fair for Authors Storytellers and Booklovers happening this April.
ReadersMagnet is a self-publishing company that has constantly been promoting new and established authors by attending national and international book fairs. It has taken part in some of the most prestigious book shows as an exhibitor throughout its existence. Some of these events include the Miami International Book Fair, the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, the Book Expo America, the London Book Fair, and many others. Due to the pandemic, most yearly book events were postponed, except for those who chose to go virtual. Recently, ReadersMagnet took part in some of these virtual book fairs, such as the 2021 New York Library Association (NYLA) Annual Conference and Trade Show and the Tucson Festival of Books 2020. This year, ReadersMagnet also decide to organize its own virtual book fair. Hence, The Festival of Storytellers or TFOS 2021.
What is ReadersMagnet’s TFOS 2021?
The Festival of Storytellers is ReadersMagnet’s first-ever virtual book fair. It is a six-day online event that will run from April 23 to April 25 and April 30 to May 2, 2021. It is also a transition from being a mere exhibitor to an online book fair and exhibition organizer. ReadersMagnet felt the need to organize and cater to the need to continue promoting authors and book titles, especially for new and independent authors. With the pandemic not going away anytime soon, only a handful of organizations are actually actively organizing book fairs and other book events. With over a hundred participating authors and speakers, The Festival of Storytellers promises an exciting event both for authors and booklovers.
The Festival of Storytellers will feature authors of various book genres – children’s books, poetry, spiritual/inspirational, sci-fi, romance, thrillers, crime mystery, and non-fiction sub-genres. The event will also host talks, workshops, and other exclusive events.
However, what makes The Festival of Storytellers unique from other virtual book events is it’s for FREE.
