Here’s the official press release calling local authors for the June 25 block party on the Noble County courthouse square. Mark it on your calendars, and tell all your friends!
A mass appearance by home-grown authors is planned during the June 25 Noble County ALL-IN Block Party, to be held around the courthouse square in Albion, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This will be an opportunity for local authors to meet each other, sell and sign books for readers, and share their works with the community.
Any Noble County author who wishes to participate should get in touch with author Mark R. Hunter, who is gathering their names and contact information as part of the planning stages. Hunter can be e-mailed at firstname.lastname@example.org, or is available by phone at (260) 636-3468 or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/MarkRHunter. Once plans and the number of authors are firmed up, authors will be contacted with further information about the event.
The local author table will be in coordination with the county’s three library systems: Noble County, Kendallville, and Ligonier. The libraries will also have other activities, with more information on those also to come.
The Noble County ALL-IN Block Party is being sponsored by the Super Town of Albion Revitalization Team (S.T.A.R.), an affiliate of the Courthouse Square Preservation Society, Inc. The ALL-IN Block Party concept is a statewide initiative from Indiana Humanities, designed to inspire Hoosiers to learn more about their state, and make connections with each other. It’s all part of Indiana’s 2016 bicentennial celebration. Locally, the goal is to involve as many sectors of the community as possible - historical, cultural, the arts, recreational, agricultural, commercial/industrial, education, religious groups, etc. - for a fun-filled and educational day for the entire family. More information about the Noble County ALL-IN Block Party can be found on S.T.A.R. Team's webpage at http://www.albionstarteam.org/.
