Meet the Author: Our “Meet the Author” event is just one more reason you need a season pass as we host a different fantasy author each and every day of our show. This is your chance to:
- Get to know the author and let them know what you enjoy most about their book(s).
- Buy a book and have it signed. You are also welcome to bring a book you’ve already purchased.
- Snap a selfie if there is time. Be sure to hashtag it with #ctfaire on Facebook so they can see it later.
- Cosplay a character from their book – we encourage it!
Visit our Market page to see our list of visiting authors.
