2019 Payson Book Festival

 Saturday, July 20, 2019
9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Mazatzal Hotel and Casino Ballroom

Arizona Professional Writers, a state-wide nonprofit communications organization, is partnering with Majestic Rim Retirement to host the fifth Payson Book Festival. Last year’s event attracted over 700 visitors.

This Payson festival will bring Arizona authors, educators, businesses, tourists and families to our Rim Country community to celebrate the joy of reading. In addition to authors and books representing a broad spectrum of genres, there will be author presentations, book signings, music, workshops and story time sessions for children.

Our goal is to promote literacy and showcase Rim Country and other Arizona authors. This family-oriented community event is free of charge and will attract readers of all ages from throughout Arizona.

This will be Payson’s fifth book festival and we are seeking help with expenses. We invite you to participate in this positive educational event by becoming a sponsor. Several levels of sponsorship and associated benefits to businesses and individuals are explained on the following page. Proceeds will benefit college scholarship funds and educational events in Payson. Please fill out the attached sponsorship form and mail it along with your check payable to APW, PO Box 1495, Payson AZ 85547. Or choose on-line registration and pay with Paypal on the Sponsorship page of our website. Please direct any questions to me at 928-478-6793 or by email to: info@paysonbookfestival.org.
