2nd Annual Larkin Square Local Author Festival

On Wednesday, May 20, 2015, Larkin Square will host the 2nd Annual Local Author Festival. The event is a tribute to all of the incredible authors that live right here in Western New York. Authors will be on hand to discuss and sign their books, and make a few sales along the way. Due to the continued success of Larkinville’s Larkin Square Author Series, literary folks have come out of the woodwork to participate and promote the district as a haven for authors and book lovers alike.

“As we conclude another successful season of the Larkin Square Author Series, we welcome back authors who’ve had their own nights here in the square along with many more for a true local literary festival,” said Larkin Square Director of Fun Leslie Zemsky. “It will still be fun and informal like our regular author talks – even more so with so many authors to meet!”

Authors confirmed to date include: David Coleman, Richard Stuewe, Steve Delmonte, Rosanne L. Higgins, Jessica Topper, Typhoid Marty, Zuzu, John M. Davidson, Ralph “Chico” Galanti, Sinead Tyrone, David M. Smeltz, Tim Shannon, Paul T. Lewis & Robert Schmid, Michael Burns Haggerty, Sandra Block, Paul Cumbo, Jeff Schober, John Grandits, William Donohue, Gary Friedman, Linda Jenkin Costanzo, Diane Riordan, Mariana Maniscalco, Natalie Hoerner, Judy Bradbury & Susan E. Busch, Mark Goldman, Heather Lynn Harris, Jeremiah McClain, Andrew Stott, Beth Peyton, Gerald Halligan, Mark Pogodzinski, Deb Madar, Kristin Chambers, Mike Farrell, Janice Okun, Mara Koven-Gelman & Liz Pearl, Budd Bailey, Kim Chinquee, Craig W. Turner, Lou Rera, Wade Stevenson, Patricia Sweet, Anthony Cardinale, and Rev. Richard Zajac.
