We are also very excited to have these Regional Writers participating in the 2019 Dahlonega Literary Festival!  Regional Writers are authors who have published one book or many.  They may be published by traditional publishers or self-published.  Most are from the Southeast and all have gone through our Review/Selection Process where their books, representing various genres, have been reviewed and selected as the best works of the authors who applied. Regional Writers may also be featured in our programming.  The Regional Writers will also have their book sales handled by FoxTale Book Shoppe located in the Fellowship Hall of the Dahlonega Baptist Church.  They will be available ONLY on Saturday, March 2, 2019 from 9:00am-6:30pm, so please stop by and peruse and purchase their wonderful books.
