Grateful Steps Foundation, the Western North Carolina nonprofit foundation and publisher, is sponsoring the 4th Annual Asheville Bookfest.  The event will bring readers, authors, and publishers together and provide opportunity for publishers to present their books and authors to the public. Along with Grateful Steps and other publisher, the Asheville-based Pisgah Press will attend the event to share exciting new book releases.  Pisgah Press has published work by short story writer, Michael Hopping, Fairview poet, Donna Lisle Burton, and Spartanburg novelist Sarah-Ann Smith.  Hopping and Burton will be attending the Bookfest and will be available to sign copies of their books.  

Michael Hopping is the author of the short-story collection, "Mac Tiernan's Bottle."  It has been praised by critics as "a rich mix of story gems and intellectual amalgams," (Rob Neufeld); "The mother lode" (Elizabeth Lutyens, editor of The Great Smokies Review); and "lean, unpredictable, compassionate and edgy" (Marcianne Miller, Rapid River).

Donna Lisle Burton, author of "Letting Go:  Collected Poems 1983-2003" is incredibly decorated with positive reviews.  NC Poet Laureate Cathy Smith Bowers writes, "Reading the poems of Donna Lisle Burton is like happening upon a cache of tender and beautifully crafted love letters," and Pat Riviere-Seel, winner of the 2009 Roanoke-Chowan Award for Poetry says, "Do not be misled by the title: once you start reading, there will be no Letting Go."

In addition to the book presentations by publishers and authors, several area bookstores will be offering discounts for attendees, and Asheville City School libraries will recieve a free book, author visit, and book reading if at least five children from the school attend.

The event is free and open to the public.  It will be held on October 20th, 2012 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Forum (Courtyard level) at Pack Place.  Access to the courtyard is most convenient from Biltmore Avenue or the Pack Place parking garage.  For more information, call Grateful Steps Bookshop at 277-0998 or visit at 159 South Lexington Avenue in downtown Asheville.  For more information about Pisgah Press, call 301-8968 or visit www.pisgahpress.com.
