“It was such a great festival! Thank you for all you do to make it work, and especially for making me feel so welcome. I really enjoyed being at the Gala and loved being on such a great panel. Thank you for all you do for the children of New York state, and for books, and for libraries.  I am honored to be part of it.”…..author/panelist

“… I just want you to know how well organized and fun the whole event was. [we] loved the banquet, ate like kings and sat with interesting and lively people.  And on Saturday, my … panel went without a hitch, I think we entertained the crowd and the turn-out was terrific.  So, to you and everyone who obviously worked so hard, thank you very much.  It was a great weekend.”…..author/panelist

“Please extend my thanks and congratulations to all the organizers of the Empire State Book Fair. As a panelist,  I was excited and impressed by the energy and the wealth of great books and speakers. I could have spent hours in the bookstore, alone. It is a wonderful event…and certainly does New York State proud, I am honored that I was asked to participate, and hope to make it back to Albany again.”…..author/panelist
