The F.R.E.S.H. Book Festival was developed to assist young inspiring authors with their marketing and to introduce them to veterans of the book business at the festival. Most first time book writers are eager to learn more about the business, and the F.R.E.S.H. Book Festival gives them the opportunity to receive information from other authors, publishers, script writers, and editors. F.R.E.S.H. is a boutique festival that has the ability for authors to interact on a personal level with their fans and host workshops while introducing their book to the community.
