JLB Creatives, a Lake County business that is Bringing Light to the Literary World, announced a unique author event for its summer offering as Authors in the Park returns to Mount Dora. The event, Picnic with an Author, is set for Saturday, July 6 from 11 AM to 1 PM. Ten local authors will gather at the Gilbert Park pavilions, located on the northeast corner of Liberty Avenue and South Grandview Street, near the Mount Dora Lighthouse. Mark Miller, Social Media Executive for JLBC, encouraged fans and readers to join in for the full event. Food will be provided by Mount Dora’s Round Lake Christian Church for a small donation, he said.
“We’re serving lunch the entire time,” Miller said. “Fans and readers will have the special opportunity to sit with the author of their choice or visit all of the authors.” The authors, Miller said, will be reading from their novels, discussing their works, and answering questions for fans and aspiring writers. Genres will range from epic fantasy to local history, and much more.
JLBC Conventions & Events executive and author, Jean E. Lane, mentioned with excitement that JLB Creatives has scheduled talented writers from around Lake County and even as far as Tampa and Jacksonville. In attendance will be: Janet Beasley, Lisa DeMarco, Bethany Jett, L.R. Knost, Jean E. Lane, Amy I. Long, De Miller, Mark Miller, Rick Reed and Linda Wood Rondeau.
