Saturday, October 3, 2009, The Well Red Coyote Bookstores, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Ninety-four authors, publishers, and booksellers from Sedona, Verde Valley, and Flagstaff, Arizona areas gathered together in a large tent outside the Well Red Coyote bookstore in Sedona for a beautiful, clear day of fun with books. The Sedona Book Festival, which was well-trafficked by locals and tourists alike, featured booths with books for sale, fifteen-minute presentations by authors and editors, and music by local musicians Wolfs Robe, Ralf Illenberger, and Judy Torigoe. BEST Life Media was present with a booth there and a presentation about the company and its products by Nicole Dean, Senior Editor. In honor of the Festival, the Sedona City Council issued a proclamation declaring October 2009 as Book Lovers Month.
