#EventRecap: Windsor Small Press Book Fair

On Saturday, April 13, 2019, I ventured out to the

Windsor Small Press Book Fair!

It was hosted by Zed Press and Biblioasis, which are Windsor based publishers. Biblioasis also has a store front location. It was located at the University Community Church above Green Bean Cafe!

I'm going to go over the different books I picked up and local authors and publishers you can check out! Let's get to it!

Also - come out to Biblioasis on April 27th for Independent Bookstore Day and meet ME, plus get discounts on books, meet local authors, and have generally a lot of fun!

The Windsor Small Press Book Fair featured local authors and publishers from the Windsor area. I picked up a LOT of books, which you can see above in the IGTV video!

It was so nice to learn more about some local authors and publishers! I am always such a big advocate for local authors and books so I am so glad I got to learn more about the book scene here in Windsor.

Learn more about some of the authors I adore in Windsor...

You can pick up Jenn's books on Amazon or the Chapters in Tecumseh!

Chelsea Girard

Chelsea can’t remember the last time she wasn’t reading a book. ​She is a blogger and bookstagrammer with an eye for creativity.
Chelsea tends to draw to novels that draw away from love stories and more towards suspense and personal experiences shared from one person to the next. She love books that make you feel for the character and give you a sense of fufillment when you claim their happiness as you’re own. That's why her poetry collections and novels resonate so well with readers.

Ben Van Dongen & Christian Laforet

Ben Van Dongen grew up in Windsor Ontario. He likes to think that if he tried harder he could have been an Astronaut, but he is happier writing science fiction anyway. He co-authored the books No Light Tomorrow and All These Crooked streets, and is one half of the founding team of Adventure Worlds Press. His first solo book, The Thinking Machine, a cyberpunk novella, came out last year and the unconnected sequel, The Neon Heart, is now available.

  1. I've never heard of these authors, so I'll have to check them out. Sounds like a really fun event! :)

  2. That's so neat that you got to meet a bunch of local authors! It definitely looks like you had a great day. I live a couple hours away from LA, which is the home for many authors.
