FREE BOOK FEST JULY 15 -- More than 30 Central Coast authors will display and sell their books at the first "Page Turners Book Fest" on Sunday, July 15, at the Monterey Elks Lodge, 150 Mar Vista. -- The free, public event is co-sponsored by the Central Coast Writers group and the local Elks Lodge. Drawing for free books, from non-participating authors, will be held throughout the afternoon. -- From 1 to 2 p.m., "How to Write a Thriller Novel" will be discussed by D.S. Kane in the Lodge conference room. Kane, a covert intelligence agent for more than a decade, is author of the "Spies Lie" novel series. -- Between 2 and 5 p.m., authors will exhibit their books and chat with the public in the ocean-view Elks banquet room. A wide variety of books will be available for purchase at "below Amazon" prices, such as mysteries, fantasy, memoirs, children’s books, thrillers, spy stories, poetry, romance and sci-fi tales. -- "It will be a great time to pick up reasonably-priced books for later gifts," said Margie McCurry, event chair. "Authors will be pleased to sign each book - either personally to you, or to someone who will receive it as a gift." A no-host bar and snacks will be available. -- Part of each participating author’s registration fee will be a donation to the Food Bank at Veterans Transition Center at Fort Ord, and a donation box at the event will give the public an opportunity to also make a gift. -- "VTC provides a full range of healthy, nutritious options to over one hundred people per month," said Kurt Schake, Executive Director, "and we have just expanded our Food Bank area so we can feed more Veterans and families. These funds will help us grow and serve more in need." -- Among authors exhibiting will be Tony Albano, Gaila Baron, Maxine Carlson, Jill Cody, Joshua Converse, Don Craghead, Steven Reed Dahlquist, Pat DuVal, Kyle Ferdinand.
