2017 Northwoods Art and Book Festival Part One:Book Arts

Cook's Notes:
Take the talents of 37 Minnesota authors, mix with assorted titles and genre, spice it up with visitors of all ages, combine with animated literary conversations and book signings, add in a tantalizing program on how to collect family stories and you have a recipe for success. 
It was a glorious day for a festival. Check out this sky.  





With so many books and so many choices book lovers found a little bit of heaven at the 2017 Northwoods Art and Book Festival. 



Here are the talented Minnesota authors who trekked to Hackensack for this event to share and sign their books. Take note of their creative table settings. The photos were taken just before the festival started.
