Once again this year the NWG will have a booth at the
Nebraska State Fair. Members are encouraged to come help man the booth. In
addition to promoting the Guild and your own writing you can also sell your own
books while in the booth.
The fair requires that there be at least one person in the
booth at all times (from 9AM to 9PM except Labor Day which is 9AM to 7PM).
The State Fair committee will have a person present at all times. We
also can accommodate two authors at a time in the booth. We offer time slots of at least two hours each on a first come first served basis, for your first time
slot. Multiple slots are welcomed but we want as many authors as want to be
included, so second slots may be shifted to suit both the booth and author so
that everyone has a chance.
To help you find your niche at the fair here are some
special days that may fit your books:
Monday, 8-25, Tuesday 8-26, and Thursday
8-28 are “school days” with loads of kids, teachers and parents coming through
Wednesday 8-27 is Older Nebraskans Day.
Tuesday is $2 ticket day for all fair goers.
