Middletown NY – The owners of Emporium Square Artisan Market, Orlando Lallave and Barbara Martinez, are huge supporters of local art. Together they will be launching their first annual Author’s Book Trail @ Emporium Square on August 28 & August 29, 2021. 

Hudson Valley Authors, Playwrights, Illustrators and the like are invited for a weekend to showcase their works. Emporium Square is inviting all local authors to join them on August 28 & August 29, 2021 from 1-6pm for a weekend created to bring awareness to local talent and provide a free space to display and sell their books. 

“This is a completely free event for our guests, they set up for free and we are not asking for any commission on any of their sales,” said Barbara Martinez. “We have a lot of local talent here in the Hudson Valley and we want to give them a space to show their talent off” she continued “I love books and I want this to be an event that also will be like a book fair for adults.”

“We know it has been an extremely tough year for all industries and the local arts has taken a beating with venues being closed and art lovers having to miss out on local events, we want Emporium to be a destination for everything art related” said Orlando Lallave “I am happy to make Emporium the place art lovers, book worms and artists of all talents can gather safely.”

Local Authors and Artists are encouraged to reach out to Barbara Martinez via email or Facebook messenger to inquire about details. Bookworms far and wide are welcomed to come discover local talent at Emporium. It’s going to be an amazing weekend of books, networking and discovery.
