Sixteen authors will be on hand at the Constitution Square Arts Fest to sign copies of their books and share stores, and give festival-goers a candid look at what it takes to be a Kentucky author.
"The increased number of participating authors is a new addition to the festival and something we hope we can improve each year of the festival," said Julie Wagner, festival coordinator.
Thomas Freese will be on hand Friday as part of Friday's School Day activities. Freese is a storyteller and author of five books of ghost stories, including "Shaker Ghost Stories," "Fog Swirler," "Strange and Wonderful Things," "Ghosts, Spirits and Angels," and "Haunted Battlefields of the South." He entertains with animated voice and movement, performing for children and adults. He worked since 1993 as an Artist-in-Residence, combining an expertise as a visual artist with exciting stories.
Several Boyle County Authors will be featured Saturday and Sunday, including Carolyn Crabtree, authors of the Forkland History books, and Clyde Estees.
