WASD LIBRARY FUNDRAISER IS THIS SATURDAY, OCT. 12 AT FROM MY SHELF BOOKS; BOOKFEST IS SATURDAY OCT. 19 AT THE DEANE CENTER

This Saturday, Oct. 12 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., a new fundraiser for the four Wellsboro Area School District libraries is being held at From My Shelf Books & Gifts at 7 East Avenue in Wellsboro.

"Instead of holding a used book sale fundraiser for the Wellsboro public school libraries during BookFest as we had done for the past 10 years, we decided to try something new in 2019," said Kasey Coolidge, manager of From My Shelf Books & Gifts.

The bookstore is donating 20 percent of the proceeds from any purchases made by customers at From My Shelf Books & Gifts this Saturday only. At the time of purchase, customers must identify they want the money contributed to the school libraries by using the code "WASD19." It does not matter whether purchases are made in person at the bookstore or online at the bookstore's website, www.wellsborobookstore.com. In either case, the buyer must use the code "WASD19." "Families and friends who no longer live in Wellsboro but want to contribute can make their purchases count by buying online," Coolidge said.

"This is a great opportunity for people to start their Christmas shopping early or buy birthday or other presents with the money going to a great cause," said Coolidge. "We hope that by holding this fundraiser on Columbus Day weekend, we will raise more money for our school libraries than the used book sale was bringing in."

The 11th Annual BookFest will be on Saturday, Oct. 19 in the lobby at the Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro. It is free and open to the public.

Featured will be 20 local and regional authors, 10 of whom are attending for the first time. They will talk with people about the writing and publishing process and have available for purchase the books they authored that buyers might not be able to find elsewhere.

Authors returning to BookFest are: Kevin Coolidge (children's), Lilace Guignard (poetry; memoir), and Judith Sornberger (poetry, memoir) all of Wellsboro; Nick Fidler of Williamsport, (fantasy); Baiba Kreger of Liberty (memoir); Samantha Lienhard of Blossburg (horror; video game scripts); Dawn Lubertowicz of Tunkhannock, (paranormal romance); Christy Nicholas of Cornng, N.Y. (historical fantasy); Paul Zelinka of State College (motivational); and Lanie Zimmer of Troy (children's; cookbook).

Newcomers include: Basil Bacorn of Athens (fantasy); Ron Bonett of Williamsport (mystery); Allison Hanson of Hershey (romantic suspense); Jim Meade of Wellsboro (memoir; business); Peschel Press of Hershey (mystery); P.J. Piccirillo of Brockport (historical fiction); John Simcoe of Mount Wolf (comics); Betsy Stone of Harrisburg (education, psychology); and Libby Trostle of Littlestown (children's).
