Dahlonega Literary Festival – Gold Mine of Books & Authors!

When most people think or hear about Dahlonega, Georgia, the first thing that comes to mind is the Dahlonega Gold Rush. And why not, with all of the gold that came out of the hills in the area! Gold mining, on a much smaller scale still persists to this day. I even do a little prospecting myself!

The Dahlonega Mint was commissioned in 1835 to mint gold coins from the gold found in the Dahlonega area and, perhaps, some of the California gold. According to the New Georgia Encyclopedia, during its history, the Dahlonega Mint coined over $6 million.

Today, though, I want to discuss another type of treasure found in Dahlonega. The Dahlonega Literary Festival is a gold mine of authors and their books. Set in the beautiful North Georgia Mountains, it’s an amazing event!

Come celebrate the 10th anniversary edition of the festival on March 8-9, 2014 at the Community House and St. Luke’s. There will be panel discussions, presentations, and book signings!

The very cool thing for me is that I have the honor of participating in the Festival as a Regional Author! I get to join in the fun, interact with festival goers, and meet the other authors. As a reader, the idea of meeting writers is exciting to me! As a writer, the opportunity to meet and greet readers is simply awesome!!
