Three CCW member authors, RJ Harlick, CB Forrest and Vicki Delany, visited Lake County, Florida on March 13-15, 2014 to participate in its annual Bookfest.

Lake County is just north of Orlando, Florida. This was the community’s first experience with authors from its northern neighbors.

The Canadian authors were greeted with warm weather and warm audiences.

Judy Buckland and her team from the Lake County Library System did a marvellous job organizing the conference.

The authors presented at venues in the cities of Leesburg, Mount Dora and Clermont.

The events provided the authors with an opportunity to introduce themselves to the Florida market.

Their books are now available in all Lake County libraries.
